I agree. My point being that now their GM is bringing them down with some of these ridiculous signings.
And as to Garcia, he may not be elite I grant you, but in today's market, he would get 13 M a year. Heck, Milton is getting something like 7 and Washburn just got 9+ M a year. You can debate whether Garcia is worth the 9 M he is getting now, but in hindsight, he is a bargain now.
