News about two 2009 Dodgers, now departed:
- Jon Garland goes to the San Diego Padres for one year, $5.3M;
- Jim Thome goes to the Minnesota Twins, playing behind Delmon Young.
We hardly knew either one, since both came to the Dodgers last season right before the August 31 trade deadline. Thome, as a DH, never had a real place on the Dodgers for a full season; Garland didn't even make our post-season roster.
Thanks for the memories, Jim and Jon!
