Apparently, the Yanks and Mets are the two remaining teams competing for Freddy Garcia. Ken Rosenthal says its been narrowed down to the two New York teams. I think this would be exactly the type of move Cashman should be making right now. He`s a low risk, solid reward guy that could give the Yanks the depth they need in the rotation.
I wouldn't guarentee him a spot in the rotation and I`d still try to sign Ben Sheets or Andy Pettitte. However, he`s a good gamble to take. In his limited time last year he was pretty solid and if he could return to his old self he`s exactly what they need.
Not that it'd be a disaster if he went to the Mets but at a cheap price it`d be a nice small move to help.
