Garland on both sides of Indians-White Sox rivalry

You don’t often see players of Jon Garland‘s caliber swapping jerseys within a division, especially not between long time rivals such as the Indians and White Sox. As a result, Garland will be the winningest pitcher in White Sox history to ever join the good guys, eclipsing Jack McDowell by one victory.

We can only hope the Garland era goes a little more smoothly than McDowell’s, who went just 16-12 in 12 in 36 starts in two years with the Tribe and spend the majority of the ’97 season on the DL.
