There’s some crazy stuff floating around Mets-ville, let’s take a look. As usual MetsBlog is on top of it.
- Mets beat reporter Sweeny Murti said on WFAN that the Mets might be close on Erik Bedard. This would be very surprising, because even the Mets’ best package could be challenged by a number of teams (unless Jose Reyes is the centerpiece). Plus, why wouldn’t the Orioles wait for Johan Santana to be moved first?
- Matthew Cerrone also heard some craziness involving a three-way deal with Bedard and Miguel Tejada, but there doesn’t seem to be anything to it.
