Mets Matters: Bronson Arroyo Would Consider Mets; Agreement With WOR-710 Official

Call it a message to the New York Mets. Terry Bross, the agent for Cincinnati free agent Bronson Arroyo said his client would be interested in talking to the Mets.

“Bronson is an East Coast guy and would definitely consider the Mets,’’ Terry Bross told the New York Post. “But we’re going to take our time with this.’’

Reading between the scant lines, nowhere can it be found where Arroyo said he would sign with the Mets, or even if he favored them over any other team.

Arroyo will be 37 this spring, and has averaged 211 innings a season since 2005, perfect for a team in desperate need of a veteran to eat innings. Since then, Arroyo (1,895.2 innings) ranks third behind the Yankees’ C.C. Sabathia (1,999.1) and Washington’s Dan Haren (1,927.2).

In a post earlier today, I suggested Haren as a possibility for the Mets.

TUNING IN: As expected, the Mets announced a five-year marketing  partnership with Clear Channel Media and Entertainment’s WOR 710-AM station.

WOR is one one of six area radio stations in the syndicate in which the Mets will be heard, beginning with their spring training games. The list includes: Z100 (100.3 WHTZ-FM), KTU (103.5 WKTU-FM), LITE FM (106.7 WLTW-FM), Q104.3 (104.3 WAXQ-FM), Power 105.1 (105.1 WWPR-FM) and WOR 710 AM.

  1. There are few pitchers I personally would be willing to sign in FA. Personally would be willing to trade certain talent for something this rotation lack LHP. Has David Price even been a consideration in these discussions? If so we now have the money to sign him with current expieration of contracts. Piching wins after all in this picher friendly park.

    • It would be nice if we had a lineup.

      At least we have pitching and more on the way. Niese is a pretty decent LHP.

  2. Terry Bross was once a Mets prospect if I recall correctly.

    I’d sign Arroyo for depth. Short term is fine, with the young pitchers in the minors.
