I like Garza.

1) He's had a track record while Buchholz has only had 1 good year.
2) Garza will get you more K's
3) Garza switched from the offensively loaded AL East to the a not as loaded NL Central, and 90% of pitchers who switch from the AL to NL do better (ala Johan, Halladay)
4) If you can stand losing a few Wins, then Garza should produce all around better numbers
5) I just feel like Buchholz got really lucky last year and will be good this year, but not as good as Garza

Garza as well. He's getting more groundballs this year, which was the big concern moving to the Cubs - Garza's always been fly-ball prone and Wrigley inflates HR. Clay doesn't have the K upside of Garza.

Garza, simply because the K/9 is so far apart.

Another vote for Garza b/c of his K potential, oh and the fact that I'm a Buchholz owner too. :(

Garza, but not just because of his strike out potential. He's been getting incredibly unlucky this year with higher than career batting averages on balls in play and team errors on defense. I own Garza and have watched several of his games. He has looked dominant, and should have much more points than he has accumulated so far. The Cubs are starting to show some life. Garza is much more of a known commodity with potential for more at this point than Clay Bucholz.

I actually think that its pretty close between these two, and I was not one of the big "Garza will dominate now that he is going to NL" guys, but I will give him the edge here based on pitching against the NL central instead of the AL east so much...

Good Luck, and if you get a chance?

I agree with Doc.

I like Garza, but not by much (and I own Clay, so... :-D )
