Things That Make You Go Hmm… Lannan or Pelfrey?

While reading Tyler’s post this morning on what if anything the Mets should do with Mike Pelfrey moving forward, I couldn’t resist the temptation of comparing him to the National’s John Lannan who is apparently available according to Danny Knobler of CBS Sports, yet too rich for the Mets taste which is rather unfortunate.
