Garland has been ripping it up this spring. Or has he?
His career ERA is 4.60 campared to a nice 2.38 this spring.
He has a career k/9 of around 5. It is closer to 4 this spring.
His career BAA is .267 compared to .262 this spring.
His career WHIP is is a nasty 1.46, and not as nasty, but not good either, 1.30 this spring.
So aside from the lower ERA, which is more of a situational stat, his other numbers this spring are nearly identical to his career numbers, which aren't very good. Of course, we shouldnt put too much weight in Spring stats, but the fact that Garland is supposedly tearing it up, yet putting up numbers similar to his undesirable career numbers, leads me to beleive that he will have little value this year. His win numbers could be decent, but he has a questionable defense behind him, and a bull pen that leaves much to be desired. I'd keep an eye on him, but he's not going to win any Cy Youngs anytime soon
