According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Mets have checked in on Blue Jays outfielders Shannon Stewart and Reed Johnson. Nicely done, Drunk Jays Fans. Although you spelled "rumor" incorrectly.
Sherman says Stewart is a long shot since he can't handle right. The Mets want someone who can handle both corners, and Johnson could be that someone (he's played 64 games in right in '06 and 13 in '07). The 31 year-old will earn $3.275MM this year. He could be useful if last year's back problems are behind him.
