Ben Sheets appears to be headed to Oakland, yup, as far away from Citi Field as possible. That’s Oakland, a team, that does things on the cheap.
I can’t say how serious the Mets were, but they couldn’t have been that intent on getting.
Jon Garland, John Smoltz, Jarrod Washburn and Chien-Ming Wang. Garland and Washburn are starters, and could pass as No. 5s, but didn’t we open the offseason thinking the Mets needed a No. 2?
Wang won’t be available until May and Smoltz would go to the pen.
The Mets are also looking at bringing back Fernando Tatis to platoon with Daniel Murphy at first base.
