Here’s Guillen:

“I’d rather go with Freddy, that’s my first choice. Freddy has to be healthy and I think he will be. Make sure I monitor him during the off-season, if I can find him. I think Freddy knows his career. I’m not going to say it’s over, right now it’s getting tougher every year when you get older. I think Freddy’s taking care of himself a lot better now, he’s a better pitcher. If you had to pick somebody right now, it would have to be Freddy.”

Remember, Garcia’s contract with Sox has a $1 million option for next year. That option includes $2 million in incentives based on the innings pitched next year.

h/t Reifert. I also see Jermaine Dye, Chris Getz and Gordon Beckham?

UPDATE: Yes, my eyes were correct:

Sox players A.J. Pierzynski, Jermaine Dye, Chris Getz and Gordon Beckham were at WWE’s televised ”Raw” program Monday at Allstate Arena in Rosemont. Pierzynski even had a chance to be a contestant on a sendup of ”The Price is Right,” with Bob Barker guest-hosting the show.

Jake Peavy will pitch a bullpen session Wednesday with the probability he will pitch next week at Seattle he he shows he’s healthy. “Right now, if he has a good sideline, our options are: give him a couple days off and maybe pitch him in a game unless we feel he needs another sideline,” pitching coach Don Cooper said Tuesday. “(Or) do that (throw another bullpen session) again and then let him start a game and let our eyes dictate what we’re going to do. Let him go out there and pitch two, three, four, maybe five innings. It hasn’t been that long, but we’ll let our eyes and our gut tell us, along with the pitch count.” As of now, John Danks and Mark Buehrle are scheduled to pitch Saturday and Sunday against the Los Angeles Angels, so it appears Peavy would take Carlos Torres’ spot on Sept. 15. …

BTW, Gordon Beckham will test his right side before tonight’s game.
