You're probably right, but the real solution is to get better pitchers. Either Grossman or Vargas probably has to go. I like Grossman as a mentor--he has a good approach, but he's useless on defense and limited with the bat. Vargas has some promise but is what hs is.
I'm just not impressed with Garver and I don't think his track record says MLB starter. Maybe a borderline starting C, but that's not exactly an offensive position. Carrying a catcher to DH limits the roster even more.
If Garver qualified in AAA, he'd have had the 2nd highest OPS in his league.....how much better would his hitting need to be to think he might hit in the majors?
edit: I'm not arguing he should be the DH, I'm arguing that his track record is "good hitter".
