I thought it was a ridiculous move when we got rid of Galarraga. We've apparently let two really good pitchers go this winter, although we did get Hamilton in one of those deals. Below is what Armando Galarraga did in a spot start for Detroit while Willis is on the DL:
"Galarraga (1-0) gave up two runs and only one hit over 6 2-3 innings in his Detroit debut Wednesday in a win over Cleveland.
He gave up a first-inning home run Wednesday night,
then retired the next 17 batters he faced in winning as a substitute
starter for injured LHP Dontrelle Willis. Galarraga showed superlative
command of a low 90s fastball set up by a pinpoint breaking ball."
I know you can't judge a pitcher solely on one start, but this was one 'Great' start. I'm shocked that we would give him up so easily. Another move that could haunt our management and specifically JD.
