Buster Olney speculated that the Mariners could go after Matt Garza, after they made their offseason indications clear.
Garza's definitely a possibility for Seattle, and he'd provide the pitching rotation with a huge boost, giving the M's a nasty 1-2-3 punch atop the staff.
Garza's career has been somewhat of an enigma to this point. His ERA, WHIP, K/BB ratio are all good, but his career record is 87-87. He hasn't necessarily been on bad teams, either.
The 2006 Twins won the A.L. Central and the 2008 Rays went to the World Series. Sure, he's had a couple years with the Cubs, but being a part of two solid organizations like the Twins and Rays would yield a better win/loss record, one would think.
That being said, he'd be another all-star caliber pitcher in Seattle and he's definitely in the Mariners' price range.
