Reports indicate the Mets have come to terms with Freddy Garcia on an incentive-laden deal that could net him as much as $9 million. Garcia, of course, was once a middle-of-the rotation anchor, but he has made just 14 starts the last two seasons because of a torn labrum.
I have two questions:
1. This seems like a good risk-reward signing. Do you agree?
2. Does this close the door on Oliver Perez, or is Garcia, like Redding, just insurance?
