Mets Morning News: Mets Searching For Some Relief

We need some relief. - Charles LeClaire-US PRESSWIRE

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

Meet the Mets

Jon Heyman says that the Mets continue to scour the free agent market for relievers. Personally, I like Matt Lindstrom and Kameron Loe as under the radar righthanded free agent options.

June 2012 was a month of magical pitching for the Mets, thanks to Johan Santana's no-hitter and R.A. Dickey's magnificent streak.

Around the Majors

Brian Wilson is not close to signing a deal but the rehabbing closer has narrowed his list of 10 teams down to 5.

The Nationals' bullpen took another hit, as they lost second LOOGY Mike Gonzalez to the Brewers yesterday. With Gonzalez and Sean Burnett on new teams in 2013, the Nats have set their sights on former Rays' stud lefty J.P. Howell.

Veteran reliever Takashi Saito is headed back to Japan, as he's signed on with the Rakuten Golden Eagles. Saito has been an excellent reliever in the majors but has had a number of injury issues in recent seasons.

Writer TJ Quinn has given up his Hall of Fame vote and he has some solid reasons why he did so.

Sam Miller of Baseball Prospectus is going to teach you How To Pitch by putting together those tv pregame pitcher scouting reports.

Yesterday At AA

Steve Sypa took a look at former Met and current free agent Craig Brazell and whether the Mets should look into signing him.

Chris McShane gives a little background into overlooked acquisition John Buck and what he brings to the table.

I wrote about some potential Colorado Rockies outfield trade targets yesterday.

It was Benny Agbayani's birthday yesterday!
