    But alas...
    Garcia always looks good thats why when he goes on the DL it hurts so bad.

    The velocity was average, he had very good movement on it though.

    yeah, his FB was 90-93.. just saw the video

    command was crap, as expected, and his breaking stuff was inconsistent at best... threw a couple of solid curves and then also a few loopy ones

    I thought his FB was above average. I thought I saw plenty of 92-93ss, and not to mention the movement down.

    The Yankees only make changes to mechanics after the player has figured it out and completely dominates the minor leagues.

    Garcia must undergo at least one more Tommy John before Eiland and Co. can consider adjusting his mechs.

    In his defense, command is one of the last things to return.

    It's never been Garcia's strong suit. His control is average but he's never had good command. Yesterday was more of the same and likely has little to do with past elbow surgeries.

    billy cather (CF) - new england kid i followed at u maine - drafted in '08 as a junior by washington, late round pick (33rd). went back for his senior year and improved in runs, hits, 2b, 3b, hr, rbi, sb, 34/25 bb/k ratio, .344/.431.491. original scouting report said he's already major league ready defensively with above-average speed that also plays on the basepaths. went undrafted this year, but i read the yanks were gonna sign him as a FA if a high pick of (heathcott?) didn't sign.

    couple of fliers ??
    Just read on BA minor league transactions report that they signed Evarts this week.

    off field issues ... 4 arrests since 2006. first was for smashing someone's car with a bat ... the most recent was in april of this year for battery and pot possession. sounds like a loose cannon, but the yanks must think he has some potential left if they signed him.

    4 arrests in 4 years is about as bad as it gets, short of any violent crimes.
