Mets Rumors: Mets have interest in LHP Craig Breslow


Mets Rumors: Mets have interest in LHP Craig Breslow


FOX Sports' Jon Morosi reports that the Mets have shown interest in free agent reliever Craig Breslow.

The Mets are targeting a left-handed reliever this offseason, but aren't willing to pay the high price for Andrew Miller, so Breslow is a logical fit.

The 34-year-old had a disappointing 5.96 ERA and 37/28 K/BB ratio over 54 1/3 innings with the Red Sox this season, but he has bounceback potential.

In October, the Mets hired Mike Barwis to be organization’s new strength and conditioning coordinator.

David Wright, Bobby Parnell and Juan Lagares are all currently working with Barwis at the team’s new facility in Port St. Lucie.

2015 MLB Hall of Fame Ballot Released: Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez Lead the list of candidates


The 2015 Hall of Fame ballot is out, and it's loaded with stars, a scenario that could give us a large group headed for enshrinement in Cooperstown.

There are 17 new players on the ballot, but two imposing names stand out: Randy Johnson and Pedro Martinez, two of the most dominant pitchers of their era.

Also on the ballot for the first time are John Smoltz, Carlos Delgado, Gary Sheffield and Nomar Garciaparra.

Carryovers who have a good chance to gain election include Craig Biggio, Ex-Met Mike Piazza and Jeff Bagwell.

Then there are embattled candidates such as Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens, whose cases will be watched closely.

Martinez and Johnson seem like sure things, considering they both earned multiple Cy Young awards — three for Martinez, five for Johnson. The only knock on Martinez might be that he only won 219 games instead of the magic threshold of 300, but he figures to be on the right side of the vote.

Here (below) are 34 players with 17 New additions on the ballot for the 2015 MLB Hall of Fame:
