Commentary: With Harvey out, Will the Mets throw money at Starting Pitching Free Agents in 2014?


Commentary: With Harvey out, Will the Mets throw money at Starting Pitching Free Agents in 2014?


Now that the Mets have lost Matt Harvey possibly for most of the 2014 season due to possible Tommy John Surgery, the Mets must decide in the off-season how to replace their ace if they look to contend in 2014.

One option the Mets have is going is the Free Agency way. The Mets have money to spend due to multiple players coming off the books including Johan Santana.

Matt Garza will be the number one starter on the 2014 Free agency market and may demand large numbers on the open market, so I don't envision him a possibility.

The Mets could go a different route (more frugal way ) and look at pitchers Josh Johnson and Tim Lincecum, both whom having off years.

Johnson has had injuries this season and Lincecum has shown some greatness this season in throwing a no-hitter.

Both in their prime and have lead teams as aces in the past. Both could use a zip code change and be penciled in on any rotation at the top.

(Weather permitting) Can the Mets do the unthinkable? Win against Josh Johnson... The Mets are hitting a  flaccid .234 with 3 HR's, 7 2B's, 3 3B's against Johnson.. The Mets hot hand going into tonight will be Mr. Bay and Mr. Murphy both of whom have had decent success against the righty..
