Also, This Just In From the "I'm Refusing to Talk About the Team on the Field" Department:


Freddy Garcia is hurt (and may see significantly more time on a couch than on a mound in the near future). Shocker there. Phillies, you are dumb. Shocker there, too. Here is who you traded the White Sox for bum-arm Garcia, who hasn't been "100 percent" (as near as I can tell, since the end of 2005) and has an ERA of 5.90 and a WHIP of 1.60 on his way to a 1-5 record this year:

Gavin Floyd (AAA): 3-3, 3.86 ERA with a 1.39 WHIP and 47 Ks in 58 1/3 innings
but, more importantly, a centerpiece of the big league club's 2009 (2008?) rotation:
Gio Gonzalez (AA): 4-3, 3.05 ERA with a 1.16 WHIP and 83 Ks in 62 innings

The future can't get here soon enough.
