Well, this makes total sense. Here's a big name guy with a bad attitude, past his prime and on the decline, asking for too much money. Oh, not to mention the fact that his health is suspect.
He fits perfect with the Mets strategy.
I've heard some Sammy Sosa rumors as well. Again, right in line, and it would be great to have both an overrated pitcher on the decline AND a slugger on the decline.
Is Jose Canseco available?
