You're then talking basically 3.5/$51 and pretty darn close to his AAV at the 5/$75 range originally projected.

    This is my only guess as to why Garza got so little comparatively speaking. On paper, he's a better pitcher than Nolasco. Not infinitely better, but better. And he's a year younger.

    At that point, the only reason I can come up with why he received that contract is "medical records". Something in his history is throwing up red flags, something we don't see as fans.

    There are just too many MLB teams that need quality MLB starters to pass up on Garza so readily, especially when they can get him without draft pick compensation.

    Could be, but I look at probably the best pitcher on the market (other than the question mark that is Tanaka) and they got him for a better deal than Nolasco and didn't have to give up a draft pick.

    For a free agent signing, I'm not sure you can do much better.
