Let it burn… We can always rebuild…
Ken Davidoff of the New York Post,says the Mets are looking outside the organization for bullpen help and are expected to be involved in trade talks for San Diego Padres closer Huston Street (how many times has his name been tied to the Mets?), Oakland A’s closer Grant Balfour, and Houston Astros starter Brett Myers.
I can just envision it now – a happy Bob Geren and Huston Street reunion.
That said, Mets assistant GM John Ricco told Davidoff that “it’s probably too early to make a move” and that the “the team willing to take on the most salary might win the player”.
General manager Sandy Alderson has repeatedly said that he is not prohibited from adding payroll and that won’t keep him from adding a player or players that he feels the team needs.
My question is why is it too early?
Are they not believing what they see when they look at their volumes and volumes of stats and find that the Mets have the worst bullpen ERA in Major League Baseball, J
