I was excited when I first heard about the Garcia trade last night. But then my stomach dropped when I heard who we traded. Does Williams want to be every GM's bitch? He stooping pretty low to take one from the Mariner's Bavasi.
A lot of people are going to judge the Garcia trade on whether the Sox make the playoffs. If they make them then it was worth it. But hell, the Sox can win the World Series, and this trade will still stink. Garcia is a good pitcher, but it should have taken a lot less to get him. And if Bavasi actually thought Garcia's value was that high, Williams should have walked away.
But I doubt Bavasi thought Garcia's value was that high. It's more likely he knew William's wouldn't walk away.
