Sticker Shock Has Mets Looking At Lackey Again

Jon Heyman of got a few laughs tonight when he said the following on Twitter moments ago,

Mets taking a little closer look at Lackey after getting sticker shock on middle-rung starters. Might rather pay for ace.

I guess when the Mets learned that the Milwaukee  Brewers’ offer to starting pitcher Randy Wolf was around three years for $30 million, they freaked.

I surmise that when the agent for Joel Pineiro mentioned the words “four-year deal” the Mets went absolutely cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs.

Hey, whatever it takes right?

If sticker shock was all it was gonna take to stir the Mets into action, all that matters in the end is that they sign the best players and John Lackey is clearly at the head of the class.

There hasn’t been much to rave about for us Mets fans so far this off season, but I think it’s a good sign that the Mets are now shopping at Best Buy instead of Family Dollar.
