What do you guys think will happen to him this offseason?
Will he be traded or non-tendered?
Ive heard talks that the White Sox are interested in him.
If the M's do trade him to the Sox, who could they be looking at getting in return?

I think he'll stay. The M's may have a deep bullpen, their rotation options are pretty much set and they don't seem to be willing to spend a lot of extra money. I think Garcia will stay. maybe a change of scenery would be good for him though.

Well, I for one hope that the Mariners rid themselves of Garcia and that waste of space Cirillo...

That would free up enough cash for something good.

I wouldn't be surprised at all if Seattle non tenders him. Not in the least.

Garcia won't be pitching in Seattle this year. Chicago has shown quite of bit of interest. If he's not traded, he will be non-tendered. With the Guardado signing, and Shiggy, the talk here is it looks like Soriano will be in rotation. :-D

I think it would be a mistake. You're talking about a two time allstar with an ERA title under his belt. A career record of
72-43 to go along with an ERA of 3.97. 4 of his 5 years in the big leagues he reached 200+ innings. He's developed a nice slider to go along with his plus fastball, curveball, change. And he is only 27 yrs old and is still learning how to pitch.

For 8 million he won't be pitching in seattle. But I don't think he will be non-tendered.

With a pitcher like that you've got a few good options, trade him, keep him hope he breaks out, use him as a closer. (Hmmm)

I personaly hope he stays, I really think he can be cured.
