Garland goes against Sox

By
Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Top Properties

Former White Sox starting pitcher, Jon Garland, will battle the only team he ever saw major league action on tomorrow night (5/15) as the White Sox are in Anaheim to battle the Angels. The game will begin at 9:00 Chicago time and be carried on AM 670 as always and Comcast Sports Net on the television side.

A die-hard White Sox fan, this one will be odd for me to watch. I haven't had much opportunity to catch the guys this season and they're slumping quite badly (OR just a bad team that had a nice start to the season)...but I'm certain to be watching this one (even if on TiVo).

I thought the trade of your #2 starter for an old shortstop (Orlando Cabrera) in the last year of his contract wasn't a fantastic idea the day it happened. Caabrera and his .230 average have done little to convince me of it.

 

It's tough to stomach keeping a bright prospect all the way to where he helps you win a World Series (winning 18 games in each of the '05 and '06 seasons) then cutting him loose in his prime.

It should be a fun one....and though I hope the Sox win (as always)...it would be poetic for my ranting if Garland struck out Cabrera a few times!

The Angels come to Chicago next week and I was sincerely hoping that Garland would be pitching and I could go....it looks like his next start will be the day after they leave town (assuming every 5th game).....here's to hoping that something happens and he pitches the Sunday Night ESPN game on Memorial Day Sunday.

It is always fun when the big name players play in a former place they called home!

Unfortunately this one occured in his new home, Rich....though the Angels are slated to visit Chicago this weekend- it looks as if young Mr. Garland won't have a start which I'm uber-bummed about.
