The Pen

Do the Mets need help? Well, they seem interested...

I don't think the Mets really need to bring in any help for the pen, though if they can get Urbina for not a lot, it wouldn't hurt...

Anyone have a problem with this 'pen opening the season (remember Moreno is out)...

Looper
DeJean
Koo
Strickland
Bell
Heilman/Seo
Heredia (I think he'll find his way in)

Also, what's the most you give up for Urbina? I say Seo/Heilman plus a mediocre prospect or two...

Out of Time

And out of options. Two highly looked upon starters now fighting for bullpen spots...

I'll hopefully have some thoughts later, but for now, an open thread is upon us...

Do you want either one of these guys in the bullpen? And, more realistically, do you see either one making it?

More reading

Mike Cameron will be traded
?
Concerned that Cameron's reservations about moving to right field could become a team distraction, the Mets have been exploring trade discussions for the veteran outfielder, according to a source familiar with the situation. The source even went so far as to tell The Post that Cameron will definitely be dealt before Opening Day.
I'm still not buying it, but it seems as though the two options out there are Seattle and Houston. We'll see...

Rick Peterson... the Guru!
Peterson is a true believer in this New Age belief of baseball-as-a-geometric theorem, a devotee to science if not a slave to it. The Mets are, too. Every shred of evidence that Art Howe ever worked here has been boiled away, except Peterson. He survived the purge.
As much as we pick on Peterson, he is a high quality pitching coach and I'm damn glad the Mets have him.

Spring Training Stories

Here's some nice reading for a Sunday afternoon...

On Petit... and Kazmir (sorry!).

More Cameron for Byrnes rumors. And no, they are still not good.

Roberto Hernandez and Rick Peterson's love of projects
. Maybe Peterson can turn Hernandez servicable again (he did it with Ricky Bottalico last year), but I'm skeptical.

Kaz Matsui and the transition to secondbase. I just like the tone of this article... I think this will work out well.
