The Giants just sent #9 prospect, pitcher Scott Barnes and a PTBNL to Cleveland for Ryan Garko.
Garko's a bit younger and cheaper than Willingham or Johnson, but at 28 he's not as young as you might think. And he's an inferior player to either of our guys.
This is the kind of deal the Nationals need to be making. If they can do better, great. But if the music stops, and we're still stuck with 4 starters for 3 spots and Johnson set to walk at the end of the year, then it's a big failure for Rizzo.
