Here's a look at Jon Heyman's latest column.

  • At last count, our Freddy Garcia list included the Mets, Red Sox, Braves, Yankees, White Sox, Rangers, Indians, Mariners, Tigers, and Rays.  Heyman adds the Astros, and we also have rumblings about the Cubs.  Although a few may have dropped out, that's a dozen suitors.
  • Heyman suggests Cito Gaston's hiring was not J.P. Ricciardi's decision.  Ricciardi may not last past this season.
  • Heyman's source says C.C. Sabathia "is believed to be interested in a 'Johan Santana contract.'"  Santana received six years and $137.5MM with a club option, full no-trade clause, and deferred money.
  • Heyman believes the relief market is limited, naming a handful of these pitchers.

Heyman's Latest: Garcia, Ricciardi, Sabathia

Sabathia turns down a 4-year, $80 Million offer from the Indians lasst year.  He stated that the dollars per year were acceptable, but he wanted a six year deal.  If CC wants $22 Million, I am sure he will get it.

Also, nobody is interested in Freddy Garcia.  Scouts have watched him through, becuase that is there job.  When was the last time he pitched at the major league level?
