Last month, during a much ballyhooed appearance with Mike Francesa on WFAN, Omar Minaya and Jeff Wilpon seemed to indicate that the Mets would be major players in the free agent market this winter. They stated that their the top targets would be a number two starting pitcher and a big time power hitter. (Their words, not mine.) They also made it clear that money was not an object and that Omar Minaya was free to [...]
According to an article by Jerry Crasnick of ESPN.com, a recent survey polled 20 MLB executives (general managers, assistant GMs, etc.) on a number of topics, including where they believe free agent pitcher John Lackey will sign. They also revealed their thoughts on the possible length and dollar amount of his contract. Of the 20 executives who were polled, the majority believe his new area code will be 718.

The Mets need a proven #2 starter to follow [...]
Last week, the Mets made it clear that getting a starting pitcher would be a “top priority”, and that “money would not be an object” as they seek to put a “championship caliber team” on the field in 2010. Both Jeff Wilpon and Omar Minaya specifically said that the Mets needed another starting pitcher when asked about the teams most pressing need.
