He's been done for years.

Even if he can't pitch any longer? I will never understand why so many people are obsessed with the idea that a player must ultimately return to the team with which he began his career. Garland is done, and his putting on the White Sox uniform again won't magically correct the structural damage to his shoulder, nor will it improve his command of his pitches. He's finished.

I've been wondering when you were going to bust this out again. :cool:

They might put his picture on the office wall down at the old ballpark to remind the geniuses that its possible to get real talent by trading an overrated pitcher for a young prospect. Instead of the other way around. Although Jon was always a horns guy around here.

Hey, can another "Bring back Joe Crede" thread be too far off?

The Sox could use a long reliever to replace the Omogrosso-Heath-Troncoso shuffle back and forth from Charlotte.

Even if the Sox were interested in that, I'm sure Jon disagrees with the idea that he's no more than a mop-up guy.

Right now we have 4 left handed starting pitchers and with Peavy on his annual DL stint, maybe a right handed starter with experience wouldn't be a bad thing, anyways Garland is only making $500,000 a year. Peavy should just pay his salary.

Starting pitching is not a concern for the White Sox (maybe it is for the Charlotte Knights, don't care about them). Signing Jon Garland would make the team's sole strength weaker.

If Jon Garland had never played for the Sox, this thread would not exist, as we would not care about a garbage starter.

Seriously. He was a solid #4 starter for the Sox except in 2005 which was really his only "great" year. If it weren't for the Sox bats in 2006 he probably would have finished right at or below .500.

Nothing against Jon personally but the Sox basically have him in Dylan Axelrod right now.

All true, but the guy came through in the biggest game of his career and kept the momentum going (game 3 of the ALCS). That is my fondest memory of Garland, moreso than any of his struggles during the Manuel era.

I was frustrated Jon Garland wasn't more successful when he was with the Sox since I always wanted to use him in defense whenever Cub fans brought up the Sammy Sosa for George Bell trade.

Oh he definitely shined in the 05 postseason and I'm very happy for that. I'm just saying he's not some elite pitcher that the Sox let get away.

I've never been embarrassed by the fact that George Bell played for the Sox.

Considering how much Peavy has ripped off the Sox, I'm all for signing Garland, having Peavy pay his $500,000 salary and then never pitch Garland.

Peavy's contract is favorable, they knew he was an injury risk, never expected him to win a Cy, and he's been generally fine.
