Pedro Injury May Lead To Acquisition

Pedro Martinez will have an MRI on his strained hamstring today, so the team should get an idea of how long their #2 starter will be out.  We were already talking about the Mets possibly adding a starter before the injury; now the need is pressing.

MetsBlog's Matthew Cerrone suggests free agents Claudio Vargas or Woody Williams.  Vargas is the most talented free agent pitcher; the group also includes Jeff Weaver and David Wells.  Other random available starters I tossed out in my Kelvim Escobar post: Jason Marquis, Matt Morris, Matt Belisle, Byung-Hyun Kim, Horacio Ramirez, Anthony Reyes, and Cliff Lee.  The Mets aren't overflowing with trade chips, so signing Vargas makes the most sense.
