Garza called up!

Postby Havok1517 » Tue Aug 08, 2006 3:26 pm

Twins purchased the contract of RHP Matt Garza from Triple-A Rochester.

The Twins didn't say when Garza would debut, but Friday seems like a good guess. After Brad Radke tonight, the Twins have Johan Santana and Carlos Silva scheduled for the following two days. Garza, who was 3-1 with a 1.85 ERA and 33 strikeouts in five starts for Rochester, is worth using in AL-only leagues right away. He'd be worth grabbing in mixed leagues if he gets off to a good start.

Man, am I glad I still have a high waiver spot in my AL-only league after losing out on Carlos Lee and Bobby Abreu... :-/ Garza is gonna go Anthony Reyes on all of us, you watch.

I'd rather he go King Felix '05 ;-)

Either way, I'm excited.

Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'

The tiers aren't really ranked in any particular order, but is a good idea of where I have them with their piers.

**Not really a right now ranking more of a "what will they be in a year or two" type of ranking

Cain

Hamels

Lester
