Jon Garland

From Gaslamp Ball Wiki - A Wiki for San Diego Padres Fans

Jon Garland is a former Padre starting pitcher. He has already worn a Dodgers uniform. That can't be good. At least it wasn't for a full season. Following the 2010 season with the Padres, he returned to the Dodgers.

Garland can run hot and cold on the mound. When he's running cold he will often get referred to as "Judy" in reference to the Wizard of Oz actress Judy Garland. It is commonly accepted that Judy Garland was not good at baseball and the nickname is in no way a sexist reference. When he runs hot he can be referred to as "Gnarland" in reference to his stuff being gnarly. "Knarland" is also an acceptable nickname if he was just struck someone out.
