Quote of the day: Jon Garland is a ‘super free agent’

Nationals general manager Mike Rizzo needs to get hooked up with Bloomberg, ASAP:
“We don’t think that the free-agent class leads us to [pay big money],” Rizzo said. “I believe the things we need or want the most are out there, and we are going to address it. I don’t see us going after that super free agent like Matt Holliday or Jon Garland. I don’t see us playing on that level. We don’t think it’s a fit for us.”
Garland is so super, in fact, that the Dodgers did not include him on their roster during the NLCS. You know, just to level the playing field.
