Hull Yes or Hull No? Matt Garza is now a Brewer

The Milwaukee Brewers have reportedly agreed to a 4-year, $52-Million deal with Free Agent Pitcher Matt Garza.

Here are 10-thoughts that have crossed my mind in the near hour since the news came out:

1.) 4-years is too long for a guy who has started just 42-games in last 2-seasons.

2.) 4-years is too long for any MLB player over 30

3.) Brewers probably needed to dangle the 4th year to get him.

4.) Numbers are better than Suppan and Wolf at time of deal & overall better than Lohse.  Lohse had better seasons right before coming to Milwaukee. 

5.) The Brewers do not squander a draft pick.  This I love.

6.) Garza gives the Brewers a respectable top 3 of the rotation.

7.) Would the Cardinals have made this deal? Probably not.

8.) When will the Brewers draft & develop a top of the rotation pitcher?

9.) 4-years is still to long...for any player, in my opinion.

10.) This move fits into my “Brewers are turning into the Bucks” feeling that has been developing in my mind that last couple years.  Does Garza put them to a championship level or does he place a band-aid over a real issue that will help get them to .500 on a good year.

Good signing?  Honestly, your guess is as good as mine.  Any signing that works is a good one.  Any signing that doesn’t is a bad one.  If Garza lives up to his numbers and stays healthy it will be a good signing.
