Garcia isn't much better. Declining strikeout rate, lots of HR allowed. Blech.
Kearns for Jake Westbrook? Westbrook is a groundball specialist, which is a big plus, but he can't strike batters out (4.5 K per 9 IP -- ugly). Nothing really exciting, but serviceable. I'd rather deal Kearns for an advanced prospect with a live arm, but Westbrook would be an OK return who could help the team right now.
Kearns for Westbrook and Guillermo Mota? I think I'd do that deal.
