Mets Close To Deals With Torrealba, Castro

UPDATE, AFTERNOON OF 11-14-07: Matthew Cerrone of MetsBlog suggests that the Mets are offering Torrealba a three-year, $15MM deal.  Yikes.  He's barely more than a backup to me.

UPDATE, MORNING OF 11-14-07: Ken Rosenthal agrees, it looks like a Torrealba/Castro tandem for the Mets.  Interestingly they're expected to split playing time about evenly.  Creative!

FROM 11-13-07:

The Associated Press is reporting that the Mets are close to re-signing catcher Ramon Castro.  I'd figured Castro would ask for starter money, but maybe not.

The Mets also plan on making an offer to free agent catcher Yorvit Torrealba, according to ESPN Radio (hat tip to MetsBlog).  Torrealba currently has a two-year, $6MM offer on the table from the Rockies.  If he's a man of his word, he'll give the Rox a chance to match the Mets' offer. 

Torrealba and Castro could combine to really shut down the running game, though both had off years in that department in '07.  Torrealba's problem can be attributed to a lingering strained shoulder.  Castro's, I have no idea.
