Mets Meet With Garcia

Jon Heyman of SI.com reports that Freddy Garcia met with the Mets in Port St. Lucie today (hat tip to MetsBlog).  As you know, the Mets have had interest for quite a while.  Garcia seems like a great pickup, a possible summer reinforcement.  Heyman notes that the Mets' success with Pedro Martinez's shoulder injury is a reason they're after Garcia.

Garcia is one free agent who does not need to scramble to get into camp.  It's all about how much risk he wants to take on.  If he's confident that he'll be useful come June, he could sign then and maximize his earnings.  If he's a bit worried about '08 in general maybe it makes sense to sign now.
