On Jon Garland from the Southtown.

I don't have any data(or even mildly amusing antedotes that "prove" such things), but I would be of the mindset that when one of these situations happen and a guy is essentially dealt and everyone(most importantly that guy) knows it, but for soem reason the trade doesn't go down it hurts his numbers until they are gone from that team....kind of the anti-contract year....I'm sure some of the guys use it as motivated forces, but I would think they would be in the minority.,.....hope Im wrong on Garland here(though he is young enough where maybe it wont affect him)

sounds like Jon Garland has a good attitude about it anyway--if I was a player and KW were my GM , I wouldn't waste time trying to fathom his thinkiing--wasted energy that just increases the entropy black hole of Sox mgmt
