Poll Results: Garcia Should Be RemovedPosted: July 4, 2011
Well, the results are in and according to the fans, in the case that the Yankees trade for a starting pitcher at the trade deadline, Freddy Garcia should be removed. We already saw Ivan Nova get optioned down to Triple-A yesterday, but it would be an even tougher decision for the Yankees brass to banish another. Based on the numbers and money, you would have to say Garcia, but his stuff doesn’t project too well to the bullpen. Bartolo Colon, on the other hand, projects very well as he strikes out a lot of guys and doesn’t walk a lot at all. There doesn’t seem to be anyone on the market who is better than what they have so we might not have to face this at all.
Make sure you vote on the new poll: Give the Yankees a grade up to this point in the season.
