Mets And The Pitching Market
Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog reported that the Mets are scouting the Baltimore Orioles and had scouts in attendance during Kevin Millwood’s (0-7 4.64 ERA) start against the Yankees. It’s possible that they may also have some interest in Jeremy Guthrie (3-6 3.71 ERA) among other O’s starting pitchers.
As has been widely reported already, the Mets have no interest in top of the rotation starters like Roy Oswalt or Cliff Lee.
Apparently the Yankees do, and Ken Rosenthal believes that Cliff Lee could soon be in Yankees pinstripes and join a rotation that includes C.C. Sabathia, Phil Hughes, A.J. Burnett and Andy Pettitte. That would be pretty lethal if it actually goes down.
Another rumor also has Roy Oswalt going to either the Washington Nationals or the Philadelphia Phillies whom Oswalt specifically named as a team he wants to play for.
No matter how bad the Nationals may look right now, adding Oswalt and Strasburg at the top of their rotation would mean big trouble for the Mets. And I don’t even want to think about Roy Halladay and Roy Oswalt in the same rotation.
