Garko signs with Seattle

UPDATING POST TO FIX ERROR --

Two months after the Giants non-tendered Ryan Garko -- amid indications that he didn't get along with Bruce Bochy -- the Mariners have signed him.

The Giants gave up Scott Barnes -- who looks pretty decent -- for the privilege of having Garko stink up the joint for two months so badly that he's part of the reason they missed out on the postseason. I'm not dismissing the idea that he may have hit a cold stretch but he looked pretty clueless when he was in the Orange and Black. Bottom line -- this is yet another terrible deal by Brian Sabean.

Note -- I had earlier confused the trade with the Freddy Sanchez deal; a poster named Anonymous was nice enough to set me straight.

Alderson --> F. Sanchez

Barnes --> Garko

Not that Barnes makes a 127AB waste of a trade that much more palatable...

Maybe there aren't too many comments on your blog, but it's an absolute gem. Just wanted to comment, not to correct you, but to say that I love this blog and check it religiously even in the offseason.
