1.25.2004 - MLB - Garcia has surgery to repair ruptured eardrums

One of the more bizarre injuries in recent memory. Now, doctors are saying Freddy's ruptured ear drums had no effect on his performance, but you've got to assume they didn't help any, either. Since he tore apart the Yankees in the playoffs a few years ago, Freddy hasn't quite lived up to the hype. But he's not as bad as he showed last year, I don't think. Look for him to be an above-average starter (4.00 ERA) for many more years, with perhaps a year or two more in the 3.50 range. Scientific analysis? No, but... ok, completely unscientific.
