I wonder why Garko seemed never to be in the mix for the Rays as a RH platoon player. From what I can tell, his numbers vs. lefties are pretty good: in 508 PAs, .302/.382/.476 with 49 BBs. 71 Ks, 17 HRs and 24 Doubles. Not great and really less than a full year's worth of appearances, but seems serviceable. And he is not helpless against righties either. Any notion as to why he seemed to elicit no interest? Is it possible he did but got a lot more to go to Korea than anyone here was willing to pay? Or perhaps his recent failures indicate that he can't play any more at age 30?
