    Garza to sign with Brewers for 4/52

    Per Ken Rosenthal.

    I think I'd rather have Garza than Tanaka at those prices.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Garza Lohse Gallardo Estrada is certainly not a bad top 4. Tell me again about how we should be ignoring the Brewers?
    The Sox traded Bullfrog the only player they've got for Shottenhoffen. Four-eyes Shottenhoffen a utility infielder. They've got a whole team of utility infielders.

    Well that came out of nowhere.

    Because they had three of those guys last year and it didn't do them any good? I don't know that Milwaukee should be 'ignored' but they have been underachievers for the past two seasons and there's no real reason to give them the benefit of the doubt for 2014 until they show something.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    We shouldn't be. I like them better than the Pirates.

    Totally wrecks my AL only fantasy league pitching staff, has he no compassion!

    Seriously, don't know how much he has left as a dominant guy he was but he remains a solid pitcher.

    Championships for MY teams in my lifetime:
    Cincinnati Reds - 75, 76, 90
    Chicago Blackhawks - 10, 13
    University of Kentucky - 78, 96, 98, 12
    Cincinnati Bengals - None
    Chicago Bulls - 91, 92, 93, 96, 97, 98

    That's really a very reasonable signing for the price. A good move for the Brewers.

    I think his arm is too balky. I think 4 years will be too long.

    Even with that addition, the rotation still smells of mediocrity and the bullpen is shaky. I would be lukewarm at best on the Brewers.

    I wonder if Brewer fans are saying that the Reds' rotation is a mirage, that it's got an ace with recurring injuries, a kid with back problems, and another ace who just had surgery.

    The Cubs haven't done much, but otherwise I take all the other teams in the division quite seriously. Wish Garza had gone to a different division.

    The Brewers seem like a team to me where they aren't as good as their individual players are. Who wouldn't want an up the middle defense of Lucroy, Segura, and Gomez? You add Braun into the order and a decent starting staff and they should be better than what they are.

    Those four don't exactly put fear into my heart. Pretty good? Yes. Dominant? No, not at all. If they all stay healthy from start to finish the Brewers may stay in the race. But I really wouldn't count on that at all.

    Matt Garza has had an ERA in the 3s for 7 straight years. He's getting less than one-third the guaranteed money that Tanaka got. Absurd.

    How does this affect the Bailey/Latos extensions or the Arroyo negotiations -- if at all?

    Re: Garza to sign with Brewers for 4/52

    Garza has been considered "difficult" for years now, which is probably why no true contender wanted to sign him long term, which drives his price down big time.

    I still think that the key to the Brewers success lies mostly in how Braun comes back. That's a huge question mark in terms of production and clubhouse effect.
