Mets Still Like Joe Blanton

Peter Botte of the New York Daily News says the Mets have asked Billy Beane to "keep them in mind" as he's shopping Joe Blanton.  Blanton could be their fallback plan for Johan Santana.  Botte says the Twinsa are still hung up on Jose Reyes, though La Velle E. Neal III heard otherwise.

On December 20th, Buster Olney said a package of Carlos Gomez, Aaron Heilman, and Kevin Mulvey would probably net Blanton for the Mets.

If the Mets can't get Santana or Blanton, they may move on to free agent targets such as Kyle Lohse, Livan Hernandez, Jon Lieber, Freddy Garcia, or Matt Morris.  Botte does not mention Bartolo Colon as a free agent on the Mets' radar.
