Not much to say here besides Pat Gillick and his scouts are apparently pretty dumb. Anybody with two eyes and half a brain could see Freddy Garcia wasn't right last year, and now it looks like he'll have to have surgery on a messed up labrum. Here's what it all means, broken down all math-equation-y style:
Freddy Garcia '07 = Shoulder Gate '00 + plausible deniability
Obviously, Kenny has learned from past mistakes. Suspicion a guy you soon want to trade is injured? Simple, just don't have your docs take a look at him and then pray to God some stupid ass GM takes him off your hands for you. To top it all off, this time we got a player in Gio Gonzalez who is likely to contribute a little more to the club than David Wells ever did. In case you've forgotten, fatty, Chicago still hates you and your underperforming, Frank Thomas-hating shenanigans.
