So, does that make him a worthwhile target for Boston? That's what the front office is currently debating, as it wouldn't be Beckett or Lester that Garza is replacing in the rotation. Most likely, it would be Aaron Cook, whose tightrope act with his sinker failed against the Blue Jays this past weekend as he gave up two homers. His ERA+ is still 124, but if you'd like to bet that the hurler with a home run rate that equals his K/BB is going to help the Red Sox get into the postseason more than Matt Garza would -- in either 2013 or 2013 -- then by all means, explain.

Following Wednesday's 6-3 loss to the Reds, the Mets announced that they have designated beleaguered reliever D.J. Carrasco for assignment following a couple of rough games — not to mention a woeful year in 2011 — at Citi Field. Carrasco was given a two-year deal after Sandy Alderson took over the team eighteen months ago, but he's been mostly terrible in a Mets uniform.

After making a major deal to shape their World Series-winning roster last season, ESPN's Buster Olney spoke with executives that expect the St. Louis Cardinals to be aggressive on the trade market once again in 2012. The piece is Insider-only, but it leads with Olney wondering whether, "There be owners who convince themselves that they're destined to be the 2012 version of Bill DeWitt, holding up a championship trophy at the end." Talking to executives, Olney lists the Cardinals, Los Angeles Dodgers and Detroit Tigers as three teams that could be out looking for big upgrades in 2012. Last year, the Cardinals made a controversial deal that sent Colby Rasmus to Toronto for a package led by Edwin Jackson, but GM John Mozeliak was ultimately vindicated by the team's victory in the World Series.

Colorado Rockies catcher Eliezer Alfonzo has already missed 48 games due to a 100-game suspension in September of 2011 for a second violation of the MLB's performance-enhancing substance policy, but Major League Baseball dropped the suspension due to procedural issues similar to the ones that cleared Ryan Braun of any wrongdoing and the 33-year-old backstop is eligible to play immediately, according to a report by the Associated Press.
