Garcia?

Postby orangecrushv » Thu Apr 08, 2004 8:41 am

I know alot of people wouldn't have taken Garcia, but if you had him, would you start him versus the Angels today? He had a decent spring, but I'm thinking no... Any opinions?

I dont know Freddy "the rock, just look at the picture of each guy" Garcia baffles me some time. But I definetly would stay away from him in his start against the angry angels. They can flat out mash baseballs.

After the way the Angels have hit the M's so far, I'd be hard-pressed to start him until I see something good from him.

I was wondering the same thing but then I took a look at his career splits vs the Angels. He's at his best vs them. Might not mean much but it could definately help sway one's decision to play him today.

Indeed. No telling when Vlad will go 3-for-4 with 3 RBI and a homer. :-b

I would leave him on the bench. Man! Those Angels are red hot with the bats.

Im starting him for a couple reasons.

1 - he has owned the angels, yes pre-vlad, but all the other dudes are there, the erstans, glaus, salmons, vlad is only 1 guy

2- angels r real good, but M's are gonna be pissed & I dont think they will get swept at home in theit inagraul series


going to take the gamble on a solid outing from Freddy
