Rumor Mill: Mets still looking for Starting Pitching


Well, the Mets who were in pursuit of starting pitching after the departure of R.A. Dickey have lost out on Francisco Liriano to the Pittsburgh Pirates for big bucks considering. The Mets were hoping to land the big lefty on a one year contract..

So now the Mets are continuing their ongoing search for a fifth starter. The Mets according to Marc Carig of New York Newsday are in pursuit of RHP Carl Pavano. He also tweets that he hears the Mets also have interest in Shawn Marcum and Chris Young.

Free agent left-hander Joe Saunders is talking to the  Orioles, Mariners, and Padres according to Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports (on Twitter). The Mets have expressed interest in him, but again he is looking for a multi year contract.

Rumor Mill: Grady Sizemore, Francisco Liriano, and Carl Pavano on Mets Radar



The Mets don’t have a legitimate everyday outfielder at this point. So far they have Mike Baxter, Kirk Nieuwenhuis, Lucas Duda (wrist injury) and newly acquired Collin Cowhill, who are all mostly going to be platoon players.. The Mets are hitting the recycling bin once more by having interest in someone who hasn’t played in the majors since September 22, 2011,  former Indian Grady Sizemore..

SNY’s Kevin Burkhardt hears that the Mets are “very interested” in free agent outfielder Grady Sizemore. The 30-year-old didn’t play at all with the Indians in 2012 and is expected to be out until midseason next year following microfracture surgery on his right knee in September, so patience will be required by any team that signs him.

After having micro-fracture surgery on both of his knees since 2010, his days as a center fielder are likely over. Chances are he’ll have to settle for a one-year deal with a low guarantee or possibly a minor league deal.

Should Mets Sign Carl Pavano?


If the 2011 season started today, the Mets would begin the year without much depth in the starting rotation. They wouldn't even have a starting five, unless you consider Dillon Gee and Jenrry Mejia Major League ready.

Therefore, the rotation would include Mike Pelfrey, R.A. Dickey, and Jon Niese. Of course the guy who's missing is Johan Santana, who'll be sidelined until perhaps the All-Star break according to general manager Sandy Alderson after undergoing left shoulder surgery in September.
