Garcia was traded with Carlos Guillen and a PTBNL (it was John Halama) to Seattle for Randy Johnson in 1998. Johnson pitched great for Houston in the second half and helped the Astros win the division. He pitched well in the posteason as well, but got no run support. Johnson left that winter for Arizona. Guillen struggled for a few years in Seattle and is now an excellent hitter in Detroit. And Halama had a few average years in Seattle before bouncing around to Tampa Bay, Boston and eventually Washington. Garcia quickly became an ace in Seattle and helped them win 116 games in 2001. The rest is history.
