Realistically I feel Garza has two good years left in the tank, and probably a third OK year, so I understand the reluctance to sign to a 4th or 5th, but it what you have to do to get the guy, if it's 4 years/60 mil, you have to assume the risk of the gamble that it may be 3/60.
Regarding Tanaka, I wonder if TR is gun shy, after watching Smith totally whiff on Nishioka who was supposed to be the greatest short stop in Twins history. There's a big difference between 4/60 for Garza and 4/100 (including posting fee) for Tanaka, and there's also a big talent difference between Japan and MLB that makes the inflated statistics distorted too. Regardless, I do like Tanaka, but I liked Nishioka too.
