Okay, I wasn’t there. I have no idea if Freddy Garcia was drunk. All I know is that Yankees pitchers don’t go to Fan Fests slurring their words (including words that begin with “F”) and looking like they don’t have a clue where they are. And yet Garcia is now a Yankee. Yup. Like Bartolo, Freddy will toil in the minors and compete for a job as our end-of-the-rotation starter. Oh, why not, right? It’s one of those low-risk/high-reward deals we keep hearing about. No harm, no foul.
Except that there is foul. I don’t see why we’re forced to scrape the bottom of the barrel for these guys. It just seems…wrong. On the other hand, Freddy could surprise us. He could win the 2011 Cy Young Award. Well, couldn’t he?
