Mets Like Reed Johnson

Yesterday both Ken Rosenthal and Jayson Stark named the Cubs as the team in hardest on Reed Johnson.  Meanwhile Joel Sherman and Bart Hubbuch indicated the Mets weren’t terribly interested.

Jim Baubach of Newsday sings a different tune this morning.  He says the Mets had internal discussions about Johnson planned for yesterday, and Omar Minaya admitted he was an attractive, affordable option.

Johnson makes sense for both clubs, though the Mets may have better internal options for a fourth outfielder.
