Livan Hernandez Hopes To Pitch With El Duque

Livan Hernandez, half-brother of Orlando, were all set to pitch together as Expos in 2003 until El Duque succumbed to a shoulder injury.  Livan, a free-agent-to-be, mentioned recently that he still aims to pitch with his half-brother.

El Duque is signed through 2008 as a Met; could they make room for Livan in next year's rotation?  Duque, Oliver Perez, and John Maine are locked in.  Tom Glavine's status is in question; Livan could conceivably fill Glavine's rotation spot.  If Glavine reaches 200 innings this year, he'll have a $13MM player option for '08.  It might be hard to turn that down.

The market is weak enough where a past-his-prime innings eater like Livan Hernandez might be a hot commodity.  If he's looking for a 3/36 type deal, the Mets would probably pass.
