Rich Garces: El Guapo (The handsome one) lives! The rotund reliever, last seen in the big leagues with the Red Sox back in 2002, finished third in Venezuela with 11 saves. The league hit just .173 against him and he struck out 23 in 23 1/3 innings. He’s picked up a win and a save in the playoffs to boot.
Spring Training invite, anyone? Anyone? Theo? Hello?
