The Mets will meet with Scott Boras to discuss top-tier starters Derek Lowe and Oliver Perez tomorrow. In the meantime, the team will try and sure up the back end of the rotation.
According to sources with the team, the Mets have already offered a contract to Tim Redding and will soon make one to Randy Wolf.
It's about time. The Metties need pitching and they seemed to be going down the list one at a time. Thankfully, they've trashed that idea and will try and sign the available pitchers as soon as possible.
No need waiting around for one to slip by. It seems the Mets are listing their free agent pursuits in this order:
1. Derek Lowe
2. Oliver Perez
3. Randy Wolf
4. Tim Redding
5. Pedro Martinez
6. Jon Garland (if at all)
I think the Mets should sign both Wolf and Redding and one of Lowe or Perez. If they can somehow swing Lowe and Perez and Wolf or Redding, that would be amazing -- but I just can't see it happening.
Pick three from that list, and who would you want?
