Ok, let's put this perspective. Think of the Angels rotation and bullpen as a bunch of Vikings that set sail to plunder. Along the way the wars took out some of them, disease took out some of them, the storms at sea took out some of them. 

Garcia can still row. 

He just can’t get to ramming speed.

he's just rowing in the wrong direction.  

he's better than Cahill who I'm pretty sure has scurvy in your analogy.

NO! Wrong! The Angels pitching staff are a bunch of Vikings that set sail and arrived at the village they were to plunder and realized they forgot their axes.

Eppler said they liked him because "he can miss bats."  Which at the time I translated from GM-speak to "They both suck but he has more talent than Alvarez."

He sees a better version of Jose Alvarez who is totally having a worse year in Philly. Not missed at all.

Looks like a pretty typical Alvarez year to me...he’s average, which is better than Garcia, who is terrible...I’d rather have Alvarez...

He throws hard.

He pitched a lot better the previous two years (heck, four years).. but he's 32... and he's just filler at this point.  He fell off a cliff suddenly.   Rough luck.
