Evidently he is going to want more base salary.

Indications are he is nowhere near ready, and he wants a two year deal, which KC may give him. Freddie Garcia may be ready for major league pitching by the All-Star break. If that is so, I would expect him on the Sox for the 2d half.

Screw him. I didn't want him on the Sox anyway.

Is Garcia hurt? A healthy Colon would be nice but I was EXTREMELY disappointed the last time we had him.

Yes, he had surgery last August. He said he'll be ready by May. The Sox say the all-star break, after his minor league preparedness. He and Ozzie are extremely tight, as Garcia is married to Ozzie's niece, and Ozzie's sons and Garcia are best friends. If he's healthy, I expect him here the 2d half.
