MLB Hot Stove: Yep, the Mets are up to something, and close to making a deal... fingers crossed.


Someone is desperate enough to play for the Mets? :*)

Chances are it is a SP and he's one of the few left.

I think it's Victor Zambrano, just to come full circle.

Hey Fatolo is still available, he'd complete a different circle. O:-)

Omar is just trying to screw the Mets as much as he can before he's fired, right?

Yup...Rotoworld has the story too (check that...it's from Heyman's twitter page)

http://www.rotoworld.com/content/player ... 60&id=2808

The Mets have acquired outfielder Gary Matthews Jr. from the Angels, according to SI.com's Jon Heyman.
Let's hope they're not giving up much and taking on very little of his remaining salary. Matthews, 35, has hit just .248/.325/.383 since signing a five-year, $50 million contract with the Angels in November of 2006 and had a .697 OPS in 316 at-bats last season. He's also a highly overrated defensive outfielder and is owed $23 million over the next two seasons.

Dear Mets fans,

I am so sorry. At least you're not the Royals.
Here's the pitch on the way, a swing and a belt! Left field! Way back! BLUE JAYS WIN!
