Looking back at the off-season moves

New, comments

I was bored today with the off-day, so I was digging through the archives to see what I had to say about the trades the Sox made this season...

I forgot how much I wanted to get rid of Garland, specifically for a power arm in the bullpen and a young projectable starter. Jonathan Broxton was the name that I kept bringing up because I felt he could be pitching in the pen out of spring training, or at worst be called up mid-season ala Bobby Jenks. Well, he's been with the Dodgers for about a month now, and currently has a 0.62 ERA with a 16/4 K:BB ratio in 13IP.

Here are some threads that should be fun to read in retrospect.
