Freddy Garcia Rumors: Monday By Tim Dierkes | August 11, 2008 at 9:35am CDT Word was that Freddy Garcia hoped to sign by last weekend, so we have to assume it’ll happen soon. Let’s get caught up on the rumors. Jon Paul Morosi wrote today that the Tigers are still in the mix. From Friday: the Astros are still involved, but not ready to make an offer. From Thursday: the Phillies are out, and the Red Sox are unlikely. The Yankees and Mets are still in. John Perrotto sees the Yankees in the lead.
