It’s old news at this point, but I should mention that the Mets visited with free agent starter Jeff Suppan and his agent in California yesterday morning.
Suppan is the backup plan for teams like the Mets and Giants, one of which won’t get Barry Zito. A few small-market clubs who can’t afford Zito hope to swoop in and snag Suppan as well. Also, I forgot to write a soup-related pun so please feel free to do that in the comments. Have we seen "No Soup For You!" as a headline yet? Suppan should spurn some team so we can watch sixteen newspapers say that.
UPDATE: Cheese Soup? Seriously, that is well done.
