It's wonderful that he pitches well in April. But those October games are sort of important sometimes.
You are a good fan, and he didn't end the season well at all (both physically and mentally), however his upside is still there if for only the back end of a rotation. Without him at the beginning of the year we get buried in the standings. If he comes in as a fat cow this spring and doesn't learn from his mistakes demote him to middle relief, otherwise he is a good problem to have. A horse at the back end of your rotation that has top end stuff. Garcia is the guy I am done with counting on right now. If he was right handed he would be checking your groceries at Kroger's by now.
