ChiSox gave away Garland
November, 19, 2007
I'm with White Sox fan Tom Fornelli: I don't get this deal at all.
Don't get me wrong, anytime you add an All-Star shortstop to your team, that's a good thing. But was Cabrera really needed? Juan Uribe isn't the best offensive player in the world, but defensively, there aren't many better shortstops than he is. Cabrera has won two Gold Gloves, but he's not a marked improvement defensively. Offensively, it's a whole new world.
