The Mets need a lot a lot for this upcoming season, and don't have a lot of money to spend on it. One of the key pieces they need is a Closer and possibly a set up man. Here is a quick update on the news surrounding pitchers the Mets have been connected to:
Matt Capps: Will Resign with the Twins, so not an option
Todd Coffey: Mets and Brewers have been connected in possible trade talks
Andrew Bailey: Nothing new on the Mets front, MLB Trade Rumors reports that the Red Sox have entered trade talks
Chad Quals: Mets have looked into the reliever
Dotel: Cardinals are pushing hard, and Dotel is interested. Reds and Brewers also entered into the discussion
The Mets price range is 8-10 million, which makes signing players like Frankie Rodriguez, Cordero, Lidge and Madson unlikely. We'll see how things break down today.
