Freddy's gone -- and without his jersey
Well, it looks like I'm going to be wearing my Freddy Garcia Mets jersey for longer than Freddy will.
The Mets cut Garcia loose after two bad starts at Triple-A Bufflao and an Ollie-like 8.18 REA.
You'll recall that Dad won this sweet signed Garcia jersey at the spring home opener this year. Since it was the first game, and the team wore its blue batting practice jerseys during workouts, it stands to reason that Freddy wore the jersey for the team's photo session -- and that's it!
Freddy's a big guy. It's a size 54 with an extra inch on the sleeves and two inches on the torso. But I still looked pretty spiff wearing it to my church fantasy draft.
