IMO you're missing the two BIGGEST holes; the rotation spots after Chen, Gonzales, and Tillman. Garza can't fix both of them.

So what? Maybe we trade away Mike Wright
and Eduardo Rodriguez
for Garza. With one gaping hole left in our rotation there's no guarantee we even make the playoffs, much less advance in them. If we trade Wright and Rodriguez I challenge you to name the next most advanced SP prospect we have in our system. In effect, you're suggesting we gamble away our future for the slim chance that this team even makes the playoffs.
I would not have a problem giving up two prospects not named Bundy and Gausman
See above. Frankly, IMO, Bundy is no longer untouchable because he won't be available as a full time SP until 2016 and his option problems that have been discussed at length in this forum.
