Tonight on SNY's Mets Hot Stove, SI's Jon Heyman delivered his latest on the Mets:
- The Mets still like Carlos Delgado and continue to keep an eye on him this winter. Heyman says that the market for Delgado is rather weak as there are many DH-type players on the open market. In his look at Free Agent DHs, Tim noted that there appear to be no more than eight available slots in total.
- Meanwhile, the Mets are not interested in free agent first baseman Nick Johnson, because they believe he has declined considerably in terms of range and power. Nicky J hit just 8 HRs in 2009, compared to a career-high 23 HRs in 2006, his last healthy season.
- Their interest in John Lackey remains strong, but as of right now it doesn't look like the Mets are "heavily involved" with the 32-year-old hurler. Heyman believes that he will garner close to $100MM.
- Heyman says that he would be "shocked" if the Mets pulled off a deal for Roy Halladay at the winter meetings.
