Giants get Garko.
He's sporting a .361 wOBA, 2nd best on our club.
He played at Stanford, so there's a local connection. I'm glad we got a right-hander and the youngest guy on the list. We gave up a 21-yr. old lefty, single-A pitcher Scott Barnes.
It appears we improved our club without giving up too much. Baseball America rated Barnes our 9th-best prospect, just ahead of Sergio Romo. I can live with it.
Go, Tim! Win tonight!
UPDATE: Super-smart stat-guy Dave Cameron (FanGraphs) is "meh" on our end, thinks Barnes was too high a price to pay.
