    Wayne Garland


    After three years in the Baltimore bullpen, Garland became a starter in 1976 and went 20-7 with a 2.68 ERA, ranking third in the league in wins (and second in winning percentage with .741). He had played out his option, and he became a free agent after the season. After signing a lucrative long-term contract with the Indians, in 1977 Garland went 13-19 with a 3.59 ERA for fifth-place Cleveland, tying for the AL lead in losses. On May 5, 1978, he had to have surgery for a rotator cuff tear. He never had another winning season, and he is remembered whenever the supposed evils of free agency and long-term contracts are discussed. (SH)
