As with Ryan Dempster yesterday, there were plenty of scouts at the Friendly Confines today checking out Garza's performance. However, Garza said he wasn't thinking about the scouts or the possibility of being traded. "No, man, I've got a (pregnant) wife who's due in 23 days," he said. "(Rumors) are the last thing on my mind right now. I got a wife who's ready to pop so I don't care where I'm going to be right now. When she calls, I'm going to be next to her. That's all I'm worried about right now."
Today's win was the Cubs' 12th victory in their last 16 games and they are now 3-1/2 games ahead of the Houston Astros. Anthony Rizzo's drove in the first run today with an RBI single and Darwin Barney's homer drove in two runs.
