Before leaving, Omar Minaya said he was disappointed not to get Freddy Garcia, who was traded by the White Sox to Philly late Wednesday night.
“He’s one of the guys we talked about for awhile,” Minaya said. “But, we couldn’t agree on prospects.”
The Mets could still talk to Chicago about Javier Vazquez, but nothing is imminent there.
Something to consider: If the Mets were picky as to who they would give up for Garcia, then they figure to be even more prudent when it comes to Rich Harden, who has an injury history and hasn’t been as productive.
