He did have to go against the White Sox. . .they have a couple guys who can sort of hit.

It's a leeeeeetle bit different when you're comparing his era against one team. . .especially a team he won't ever have to face.

Probably a good move by both. WS are trying for now, and Garcias hot. Seattle needed Olivio and Reed, as they are a very old team. I do agree that Garcia could see a era rise, but his wins should rise too.

i agree the wins could prolly increase his overall value in most leagues... just that theres very little/no room for him to get better elsewhere. something to keep in mind if you kinda have a diff. league setup or you dont need wins etc...

as for the overall deal, i think the White Sox kinda losr out especially since Garcia is basically a rental (they offered him a contract before the deal went down but he declined). Reed is pretty good as far as i know... Olivo still has room for improvement even in Safeco.

Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)

hey according to sportsline garcia is slated to start tommorow against the twins. Do you think he will actually start already. He was still in the M"s clubhouse yesterday?
