It is a fair offer. Whether or not I take it depends on what your team needs. You're getting a bit of upside with Minor and you're hoping Frenchy keeps last year's momentum rolling into 2012.

Edit; You're stacked at pitching, see if maybe you can squeeze more offense out of Garza and get a pitcher of less value in return. Or even better see what you can get from him for Garza straight up if he is interested.

I would say no. I like Minor but he doesn't have much of a track record right now and all you have is a good spring training which shouldn't effect his value. Frenchy is a wild card. Garza is a solid #2 and you should get that kind of value in return.
