No Moves Likely For Mets Pitching Staff

Andy Martino of the New York Daily News writes that the Mets are unlikely to make any moves for pitching via trade or free agency, and specifically adds that the Mets are not interested in Jarrod Washburn.

If it seems a bit early for such discussions, that is largely due to the travails of John Maine, whose fastball velocity is way down, while his ERA is way up. After allowing seven earned runs in three innings last night, Maine faces a do-or-die start on Sunday night against the Cardinals, according to Newsday's David Lennon.

Another reason for New York's reluctance to reach outside the organization is a lack of attractive external options, though should the team climb into contention, a partial-season deal with Pedro Martinez could be considered.

I hope you realize that Jarrod Washburn is not what the Mets need either, so why would they be interested? They need a #2, not a #4. Seriously, no Mets fan is dying to have Jarrod Washburn. Time to make Mejia a starter again?

That may be true, but the Mets aren’t going to find a #2 starter in the middle of April.

Obviously. They could have had one, but they missed their chance.

takahashi can probably step up and fill his role if need be. no point in signing/trading for another #4/#5 when they already have a ton of those guys available.
