Found November 12, 2011 on Mets Fever:
Jonathan Broxton appears to be a good fit for the Mets, he's looking for a one year deal with incentives as he attempts to restore his career.  The 27 y/o closer was a two time All-Star in which he collected 58 saves with an ERA under three.  But Broxton hasn't effectively pitched in a year and a half,  he's just over a month removed from what is described as minor elbow surgery.  I'm not sure the Mets have contacted anyone yet, but if they have and are avoiding Broxton maybe the risk out weighs the savings...

He may well be back, if he is not claimed.Regardless, he will now forever be emblazoned in my memory. OK, I’m...

Email Q&A, pres. by Citi: Why not sign pitching?

Peter G sent in an e-mail asking: “For the same money (as it would cost the Mets to sign Jose Reyes) they could potentially sign Mark Buehrle and Heath Bell.  Also there is a good chance they could sign them to three-year deals. As much as everyone loves Reyes, the Mets aren’t going anywhere until they get some better pitching.
