Sounds like Sweaty Freddy is done.

Didnt the Mets give him 9 MILLION in guranteed money?

Well, Freddy got us a ring. It's over for him, though.

How soon before we hear the WSI Cliché about a certain pitching coach that is a miracle worker?

No, he could earn up to $9 million or however much it was, I didn't think it was that much. Who would be crazy enough to give him that kind of money?

Sad for Freddy, he's really fallen a long way awfully quick.

For starters, the Mets.

He's done. Time for him to hang it up and find a scouting job somewhere.

You mean Coop? Him and Dr. Pain can fix him.

I mean, someone had to say it, right? :redneck

Sorry to hear this about Freddy but it looks like it is time for him to hang it up.

Sorry to see this. Freddy was a big part of the Sox '05 season, and it's too bad that he appears to be done at age 32.

I would sign him to a minor league contract. He signed with the Mets b/c they were going to him an incentive based contract which was going to be very lucrative if he played well.

But, that big contract isn't going to happen for Garcia. Back to the basics.

You really are on a one-man mission to reunite the '05 team, aren't you?

You do realize something is very wrong with Freddy? He is throwing in the mid 70's to low 80's. I would be very surprised if he doesn't call it quits.

He's done. The Mets released him last night, and he was on a plane home this morning at 7am before the news even hit the wires.

He knows how to pitch.

Looks like the Sox are at least considering signing Freddy.

I don't see anything wrong with signing him. Charlotte can't get any worse, and Pods could probably use a familiar face there.

What the hell good could signing him do? At all? He's totally unusable at the pro level. I wouldn't even ask him to coach/mentor, actually.

Thanks for '05, Freddy. You were really great.

That's purely speculation from a Tribune writer. The only reason Ozzie had any comment at all is because Freddy is family.
