PROPERLY FRAMING THE MATT GARZA TRADE Sky Kalkman nails it.The reason the Rays win this trade every time is because with Jeremy Hellickson available to replace Garza, the Rays are trading a surplus commodity. The acquisition of young, cheap talent while shedding salary without sacrificing performance gives the Rays an obvious win, even if Garza is the Cubs ace in 2011. It's much like the Pirates trade of Nate McLouth that allowed them to play Andrew McCutchen full time.
