Default Freddy Garcia Announces Retirement

According to Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com
Freddy Garcia will attempt to lead Venezuela to victory in the championship game against Mexico before hanging up his cleats.

Garcia's best season came in 2001 as part of the Seattle Mariners team that tied an MLB record with 116 wins. He threw a league-leading 238.2 innings with an 18-6 record, 3.05 ERA, 163 strikeouts and finished third in American League Cy Young voting.



The two-time All-Star also won a World Series title in 2005 with the Chicago White Sox, pitching seven scoreless innings in a 1-0 victory over the Houston Astros in the series-clincher.

WSI was a madhouse during his signing going into 2004. That was the most ever people on the site until the World Series.

Yeah I remember how crazy some got over trading for him.
Didn't it happen during the cross town series? I want to say I remember Dusty Baker couldn't believe the Sox had pulled it off.

I wonder what Jeremy Reed is doing these days? Freddy had a solid (and sometimes spectacular) career. I hope he enjoys retirement.

Probably deciding what hat he wants to wear in his HOF induction.

Always liked the Sweaty One. Happy retirement.
