Metsblog.com is reporting that the Mets are talking to the Texas Rangers about OF Brad Wilkerson, not Eric Gagne.
What? Why? Huh?
This baffles me as much as their interest in Jay Payton. If they're looking for mediocre experienced outfielders I think Shawn Green, Ricky Ledee and even Marlon Anderson fit that bill.
If they get Wilkerson for the often coveted Player To Be Named Later that I can deal with, but I wouldn't trade a AA prospect for Wilkerson. I don't see him bringing any real value.
Focus Omar. Relief Pitching!
