Mets Interested In Vargas

The Mets are currently considering Orlando Hernandez, Mike Pelfrey, and Jorge Sosa for their fifth starter job.  A little more depth wouldn't hurt.  According to Bart Hubbuch of the New York Post, Omar Minaya said the Mets "will have a strong interest" in Claudio Vargas.  Minaya once traded for Vargas as GM of the Expos.

My gut says Vargas could be solid with the Mets.  His strikeout rate and control never seemed to match up with his ERA.  If Rick Peterson could help him keep the ball in the yard, a low 4s ERA over 180 innings seems possible.  There doesn't seem to be much downside to signing him.
