You didn't have to tell me, I was happy going into the season with Z/Dempster/Wells/Gorz/Cashner.

I always said this is a 2-3 win improvement to a 75-80 win team, and I doubted Garza's success would translate to the NL Central for a variety of reasons, including being a flyball pitcher in a pithers park to playing in a hitters park and a division of hitter parks, and pitching in front of a far worse defense than he did in Tampa Bay.

That being said, his peripherals are still very good, so he has a good chance to turn things around.
