I just read over at MetsBlog that Joe Mays is a free agent and I saw yesterday that Kyle Lohse was sent down to AAA by the Twins. I would think either of them would be a better option that Jose Lima pitching once every 5 days for the Mets.
I'm not a big numbers guy (but I know some of you are so you can help me out here) but after a quick look at Lohse's numbers, they arent that terrible. He has struggled this year but he had a 4.18 ERA last year and a K/BB ratio of about 2. Mays's numbers are pretty bad so he might not be much better than Lima Time but I think I would rather have Lohse than Lima at this point. He would probably at least give us a chance to win when he is on the mound.
Anyone else have some thoughts on this matter (violent Jose Lima thoughts notwithstanding)? Anyone else have some other solutions for this problem especially since Bannister got hurt again today in his rehab start?
