The Red Sox' pitching troubles have been well documented this offseason. While they have gotten to improving their bullpen lately, they still need to fix their rotation. I think one cheap and fairly effective way to do that would be to sign Jon Garland. Garland was injured for most of 2011, only starting 9 games for the Dodgers. In those 9 games he was typical Jon Garland, sporting a 4.33/4.63/4.86 pitching line. Other than 2011, however, Garland has been a very consistent workhorse-- throwing 200+ innings in every year but 2008 (he still had 196.2). The Red Sox really need some innings eaters after last September when nobody could get past 5 innings. Throughout his career, Garland has been solid but unspectacular with a career 4.32/4.68/4.58 pitching line. His K/BB ratio is not too sharp, at just 1.61 for his career. However, he doesn't walk too many people or strike too many people out, at just 4.86 and 3.02, respectively. I think that if Garland could return to the 2012 season healthy, then he would be a cheap and effective option for the Red Sox.
