  • METS Interested in Freddy Garcia, again!

    The NY Daily News is reporting this AM that the METS are, once again, pursuing FREDDY GARCIA. Read More.....

    http://www.nydailynews.com/sports/ba...dy_garcia.html

    Can't believe that Omar really thinks that Garcia is an answer to the METS pitching problems. What do you think?

    i dont think garcia is the answer either , i think the only way your going to get any help with the rotation is via trade , santana , bedard, kazmir etc.
    i really hope omar doesnt sign this guy , and plus he just had surgery on his rotaters cuff and wont be avialbe till mid-season dont think it would be a very good signing at all.

      IMO, the interest in Garcia is similar to interest we had in Mark Mulder last year. He would likely be signed to a 1-year or 2-year, HEAVILY incentive-laden deal as an extra starter if he even signed at all.

        ^Exactly. Garcia won't be intended to be the ace or #2, he'd be a 1-year, incentive laden deal. Low risk/High reward.

          If they can get him cheap, I think he's definately worth the risk. Before last season, he had 6 straight years of 200+ innings.

            He's a solid #3 guy, much like who Glavine has become... and cheaper.

                Go and sign him!
                First, he doesn´t cost any prospects (and we doesn´t have the stuff to trade for an ace. I´ve read that the Twins ask for Reyes at least in a trade. So forget Santana!). Second, he´s an inning eater AND a good one. His career-ERA is close to 4.0, he has a positive record and has 1.24 ground outs on one fly out.
                So it would be nice to see him signed to the end of 2009 with a club option or a clause in the contract like an extra year for 20 wins, an ERA under 3.50, +200 innings or s.th. like that.
                An average up to 10mils/year is ok in this time of baseball for a pitcher like him. Heck ... it´s even under average.
                sorry for some grammar mistakes

                  He's not going to be an innings eater after he had shoulder problems.

                    I'm going to ask a question for all the people who just look at this post and say "oh" or "I see". Who's Freddy Garcia?

                      He was traded to the Phillies last year but was out the majority of the year with shoulder problems. He may have had them at the end of 2006.

                        I don't really see how this improves our rotation. I understand that he's a low-risk guy (if it's the right kind of contract), but that doesn't mean he's not clogging our rotation. We need an ace, not another project...

                          Aces aren't easy to come by. Are you ready to give up at least your top 2 prospects for Santana?

                            9 out of 10 Met fans will say yes. We're tired of seeing bums like Brian Lawrence, Dave Williams, Jose Lima, etc get starts. We want an ace. It's the only thing this team needs to get to a WS.

                              In a second. If we can get an ace for two of our top prospects, I would do that trade in a second.
