Freddy Garcia is reportedly down to choosing between the Yankees and the Mets for his team in 2009.
Via Ken Rosenthal:
Rosenthal also notes that the Mets and Yanks don't see Garcia as a definite addition to their rotations, making them less likely to offer him a major league contract.
Garcia would prefer a major-league contract, which would guarantee him termination pay if he were released in March, but might need to accept a minor-league deal.
The Mets are trying to sign a free-agent starter from a group consisting of left-hander Oliver Perez, right-hander Ben Sheet [sic] and lefty Randy Wolf.
