Just tuned in to WFAN and heard Francessa say the Mets are looking for pitching, mainly A.J. Burnett and Derek Lowe. Apparently he spoke with Minaya and was relaying the info.
C.C. Sabathia is out of their price range.
They're not looking for Orlando Hudson. They're sticking with Brian Schneider at catcher.
The Mets believe Murphy can be a Pedroia/Youkalis type of gritty player.
I think Burnett would be a great addition to the pantheon of failed Mets free agents. Good luck with that aging line-up. Glad I burned my Mets cap after Kenny Rogers was brought in out of the bullpen by the idiot Valentine back in '98.
