10 Players Who Could Have Been Mets
Here is a list of players that were either rumored or reported to have interest, or connected to the Mets in someway this off season. Most of them were reported by sports writers via their Mets sources. Some of them were free agents and others were connected via trade rumors.
I wanted to take a look and see how most of them were doing so far this season. I didn’t include Manny Ramirez because quite frankly all the Manny hysteria this offseason was fan driven and there never were any real indications that the Mets ever had interest in him.
Derek Lowe – 35 IP / 3-1 / 3.03 ERA / 1.29 WHIP / 28 K
Randy Wolf – 31 IP / 1-1 / 4.31 ERA / 1.09 WHIP / 27 K
Will Ohman – 8.2 IP / 2 HLD / 1 SV / 4.15 ERA / 1.04 WHIP / 4 K
Juan Cruz – 10.2 IP / 3 HLD / 1 SV / 1.69 ERA / 0.84 WHIP / 6 K
Brian Fuentes – 8 IP / 0-2 / 5 SV / 7.88 ERA / 2.13 WHIP / 12 K
Michael Young – 92 AB / .315 BA / .370 OBP / 6 HR / 13 RBI / 19 RS / 2 SB
Raul Ibanez – 82 AB / .354 BA / .426 OBP / 7 HR / 19 RBI / 20 RS / 3 SB
Adam Dunn – 75 AB / .293 BA / .454 OBP / 6 HR / 15 RBI / 11 RS
Bobby Abreu - 87 AB / .356 BA / .424 OBP / 0 HR / 12 RBI / 9 RS / 11 SB
