That wouldn't be hard. As for Garcia I hope he is one of those quietly confident guys. The first time he strikes out with the game on the line, or goes in an 0 for 41 slump will result in predictions of failure. I don't know about a toxic clubhouse but it must be hell for the players right now. I hope Garcia is immune to the negativity which will surely be there.
