Default Freddy Garcia Announces Retirement

According to Jesse Sanchez of MLB.com
Freddy Garcia will attempt to lead Venezuela to victory in the championship game against Mexico before hanging up his cleats.

Garcia's best season came in 2001 as part of the Seattle Mariners team that tied an MLB record with 116 wins. He threw a league-leading 238.2 innings with an 18-6 record, 3.05 ERA, 163 strikeouts and finished third in American League Cy Young voting.



The two-time All-Star also won a World Series title in 2005 with the Chicago White Sox, pitching seven scoreless innings in a 1-0 victory over the Houston Astros in the series-clincher.

WSI was a madhouse during his signing going into 2004. That was the most ever people on the site until the World Series.

Yeah I remember how crazy some got over trading for him.
Didn't it happen during the cross town series? I want to say I remember Dusty Baker couldn't believe the Sox had pulled it off.

I wonder what Jeremy Reed is doing these days? Freddy had a solid (and sometimes spectacular) career. I hope he enjoys retirement.

Probably deciding what hat he wants to wear in his HOF induction.

Always liked the Sweaty One. Happy retirement.

That thread was all about Reed, and he ended up the worst of the three players dealt. Funny how that works out. Morse is still around.

Remember when Garcia drilled D. Lee after Maddux drilled Dye? I loved him for that.

I thought Miguel Olivo was going to be a perennial All-Star. I was wrong: instead, Freddy Garcia was a world champion.

He's the minor league Hitting Coordinator for the Brewers.

He'll forever be remembered for that 2005 starting rotation. They were incredible in the postseason.

Yeah, that is interesting how that worked out. Morse had a great year for the Nats in 2011.

Miguel Olivo is still hanging around too. Signed with the Giants recently and got an invite to spring training.

In unrelated uniform update news, the Giants are issuing a new piece of gear to its players throughout the organization:
