Garza to Detroit would not be a big deal

With the news of Detroit being willing to deal away Jacob Turner, who is one of the top pitching prospects in all of baseball, many believe the chances of the Yankees trading for Matt Garza are closer to "none" than "slim". Right away myself and other Yanks fans thought "dammit", but I had to ask myself... is that really a problem?

Sure, the Tigers get a lot better with Garza slotted behind Justin Verlander, along with Max Scherzer and Doug Fister. But I've always believed that if the Yankees do "their thing", then it doesn't matter what anybody else does. Especially when it comes to making moves in response to what the Red Sox do, which is something that always freaks out many Bomber fans.

The Yanks could still pick-up Kuroda and have a rotation that could put the team in position to beat anybody. Remember, we don't need a rotation like the one in Philadelphia in order to win. Hell, our offense was able to overcome AJ Burnett's sad starts the last two years.
