Meet the Mets

The Mets are in on the Joel Pineiro chase with a very reasonable number of 2 years, $15 million. If that is the case, then they definitely need to take a look at second base.

Argenis Reyes has signed with the Dodgers. He'll probably become the next Marco Scutaro.

The Mets and Orioles aren't alone in showing some interest in Carlos Delgado. Delgado's original team, the Blue Jays, are scouting him as well.

Ryan Church will be playing alongside Lastings Milledge in Pittsburgh.

Greg Maddux has joined the Cubs front office as an assistant to GM Jim Hendry.

Will Jacoby Ellsbury be upset that he's been "demoted" to left field?
