Sox re-sign Garland

Jon Garland might have signed a longer contract for more money next year. But that didn't matter to him. The White Sox pitcher agreed to a three-year, $29 million contract Wednesday with the 2005 World Series champions and avoided salary arbitration.

"I love the city," Garland said during a conference call with reporters. "It's where I wanted to play, where I wanted to be. And I'm happy to be there."
The 26-year-old right-hander who was eligible to become a free agent after the 2006 season, will receive $7 million next year, $10 million in 2007 and $12 million in 2008, according to the White Sox.

Before getting on the call, Garland had just completed a throwing session on a Little League field, where he was nearly kicked off by an official.
"Nobody knows who I am," Garland said in jest.

Chicago and its fans certainly do.

He went 18-10 with a 3.50 ERA and led the American League with three shutouts last season with the White Sox. He threw three complete games and struck out 115 in 32 starts.
Garland, who was an AL All-Star representative last season, went 1-0 with a 2.25 ERA in two postseason starts, including a complete-game victory against the Los Angeles Angels in Game 3 of the ALCS.

Garland is 64-61 with a 4.42 ERA in 181 career games over six seasons, all with the White Sox.

Well, the White Sox will obviously be a very good team this coming season, as they were last season. But will the be better or worse than last year?


  • I think worse...Mainly becasue they started hot then cooled down before heating up agian to win it all. I htink the cool version was a little closer to reality...The will still win the division becasue Cleveland is losing pitching, but I don't they are near as good.

  • Well, maybe the Twins will get some offensive and be really good. But I don't think that's gonna happen.... :)
