Freddy Garcia on the road 

Cliff brings up an excellent point which I thought about looking into the other day, but I never got around to it. Freddy Garcia's road stats. Take a look at the ERA/BAA/OPS numbers of Freddy at home and on the road:

home: 2.54/.207/.580
road: 4.04/.281/.765

Ouch! The sampling size for home and away are 184 AB and 171 AB, respecitively, so the sampling size isn't too bad, and at least he's evenly split between the two. As you can see here, Safeco plays as an extreme pitchers park, but Yankee Stadium is pretty even, though it leans a little in the favor of the pitcher. IF Freddy does indeed come to the Yanks, we should definately expect a pitcher with a 4.04 ERA instead of the 3.21 ERA that he has put up with the Mariners so far this season.
