Mets Shopping Schoeneweis and Sosa
According to Adam Rubin, the Mets are shopping Scott Schoeneweis and Jorge Sosa, hoping to clear some payroll as well as room on the roster for some of their young guns.
Personally, I wouldn’t mind seeing either of them go, if not both. Sosa is a streaky pitcher who relies exclusively on a slider — and if it’s not breaking sharply, we watch balls fly over the fence.
Shopping the Show is an equally fine idea. What I saw this past week in his outing in Jupiter was more of the same we saw last year: about 85-86 MPH slop. I’d be much happier knowing there were two spots in the bullpen with flexibility — meaning, the ability to bring youngsters up and down and/or sign veterans to short contracts, until Willie Randolph finds the right “mix”.
