Mets Talking To Saunders, Marcum And Pavano
According to Marc Carig of Newsday, the Mets are now kicking the tires on Joe Saunders. He reports that they are still discussing Carl Pavano and Chris Young, as well as Shaun Marcum.
Saunders would be a nice addition to the Mets rotation, and could easily slot into the number four or five spot. He has a career record of 78-65, and was solid for the Orioles this past season, pitching to a 3.63 ERA after being acquired at the trade deadline.
Marcum is also someone of interest, as he is a very solid pitcher when healthy. He has four straight seasons pitching to an ERA of 3.70 or less. He has spent his last two seasons with the Brewers, going a combined 20-11 in 54 starts. Marcum has a career record of 57-36, and an ERA of 3.76.
