Mets Rumor Mill: Possible Acquisition Tracker

With so many rumors and nothing actually happening for the Mets at the Winter Meetings, I decided to start a running post of all players the Mets have been linked to, with updates as to their current status. These links are only meant to represent the team's position, not external actors or opinions.Of course the Mets will be linked in some form to most every free agent, so I tried to give some indication where it seemed there was more than just nominal interest. Consider this thread an update on the Winter Meetings thread and post any links you want me to add in the comments.
