Quote of the day
"He [Matt Garza] was as advertised." -- Texas outfielder David Murphy, after newly-acquired Matt Garza held the Yankees to one unearned run on 5 hits over 7-1/3 innings
Matt Garza must be happy that he wonít have to pitch in Wrigley Field again this season. In spite of having a sub-3.00 ERA for the entire season, he sported a 4.73 ERA at Wrigley, where opponents were hitting .282 against him. Admittedly, those stats are only for 4 starts, and his Wrigley stats were quite good over the previous two seasons. But if you throw out the Wrigley games this year, heís got an ERA of 1.91 and a BAA of .196. Good time to sell high? Thatís what the Cubs thought, I guess.
