It's not too sad. I liked Miggy, but this is baseball and Garcia will help win more games. I hope Miggy goes to a good team when his contract is up, hopefully the Sox

He's a good kid. I hope he becomes an all-star. I'll always root for him.

I like Olivo, too, and I hope he does well with Seattle except on those occasions they play the Sox. Sadly trades are part of the game. I hope I fall in love with Freddy Garcia later this week.

I've seen guys like Billy Pierce, Jim Landis, Luis Aparicio, and Nellie Fox get traded, so I'm used to players leaving, but Olivo's reaction parallels that of Earl Battey who cried when Chuck Comiskey told him that Bill Veeck had traded him to the Senators. Now I'll have them linked in my mind forever.

Still, I think the trade improves the club, and that's the most important thing.

Anyone know how many years he has until he can be a free agent?

From the article, I wouldn't doubt if he came back in the future as a FA.

Well, he's always welcome to come back when he's an FA in a couple of years. Welcome to the business world of baseball.

I will definately miss Olivo. I think he has the potential to be one of the best catchers in the league. Who knows, maybe some day we'll see him wearing black and silver again.

I saw the same type of thing on the mariners website about garcia. He says he wants to sign with them at the end of the year.

He won't be eligible for free agency until after his 6th full season, IIRC, which would be after the 2007 season. I think.
