Mets Morning News: Is Carl Pavano A Fit? Do We Want Carl Pavano To Be A Fit?

Jesse Johnson-US PRESSWIRE

Your Saturday morning dose of New York Mets, Major League Baseball news, notes, and links.

Meet the Mets

With Francisco Liriano agreeing to a two-year contract with the Pirates, the Mets' focus for their fifth starter has apparently turned towards the likes of Carl Pavano, along with Joe Saunders, Shaun Marcum, and Chris Young.

Around the Majors

The Oakland A's are seeking a new five-year lease at the Coliseum, thanks to Bud Selig and the Giants not allowing the A's build a park in San Jose.

A.J. Pierzynski and the Rangers have agreed to a one-year, $7.5 million contract.

A hip issue is what seems to be holding up Mike Napoli's deal with the Red Sox.

Jimmy Fallon, Billy Crystal, and Jerry Seinfeld revisited the "Who's On First" routine.

In the realm of injury prone pitchers signing minor league deals, the Indians signed former Mets prospect Scott Kazmir, the Twins signed righty Rich Harden, and the Mariners signed Jeremy Bonderman.

Yesterday At AA

Steve Sypa profiled 22-year old Cuban infielder Aledmis Diaz. If he could play second base, he looks like he could be interesting.

Chris McShane profiled a few starting pitching targets: former Met Chris Capuano, former Yankee Carl Pavano, and Francisco Liriano (who signed not long after it was posted).

On December 21, 2009 the Mets added a man named Robert Allen Dickey to the organization. Amazin' Avenue was never the same.
