Mets After Lieber?
So now the rumor is that the Mets may be interested in Jon Lieber. What a novel plan.
Funny, isn’t it, how we come up with great ideas on MetsToday and a few days later they become reality?
OK, it’s probably a lucky coincidence … we make a LOT of suggestions here, and only about .03% are exercised by Omar Minaya.
In any case, going after Jon Lieber makes a heckuva lot of sense for the Mets. He’ll be cheap, he’ll only be a one-year commitment, no one will think twice about cutting him loose if one of the youngsters outperforms him in spring training, he can be used in the bullpen, he’s had success in New York City before, and there’s a decent chance he’ll be able to fill the #5 spot in the rotation for most of the year. Did I miss anything?
Above all else, it would be nice for the Mets to finally sign someone to add to their starting pitching depth — particularly someone not named Jose Lima.
