INFO:
Garaffa was a midfielder who played as left-half. He started his career in his country, at Racing Club in 1931. He played 50 matches in three seasons and capped 2 times for Argentina. He transferred to Italy where he played 86 games for Livorno between 1934 and 1938, scoring 3 goals. He also played for Crvena Zvezda, Prato, Cosenza and Lecce. Garaffa was a defensive midfielder whose game was based on setting up the action more than interdiction. An excellent player, he formed a fantastic couple of half-backs with the Uruguayan Ulisse Uslenghi. A half-back with typical great mobility, Garaffa also had the class of an inside forward. He ran a lot but he never lost mentality, so that everytime he had the ball he could set up the action for his teammates. His class and performances brought him to be called up for Italy but unfortunately he never played a match due to the high competition at that time.

MEN at 88, TW at 86?

Why does he looks like one of the best halfbacks in Italy during that time on this regard, regardless of his call ups, if he played half of this era in Serie B?

Just take a look at the midfielders's MEN and TW who were selected to represent Italy at the time of his Livorno career
Italy 1934
Italy 1936
Italy 1938

Mmh it's almost as good as most of them. As I said in the info he never capped for Italy due to these better players, so yes those stats need to be lowered. What about 81-82 MEN and 79-80 TW? Also would you decrease also other stats? And would you make the era 1933-1935 considering only the Serie A season or it's ok as it is?

Yes, like a MEN/TW combo of 80-80 looks better, you should to keep these relatively "unknown" players benchmarked with the most "well-known" players that have an international career as long they are share a similar playing style.
