As more sources report it, it seems that the Mets are indeed talking to Oakland about Rich Harden. John Delcos is hearing a slew of pitchers who could be swapped between the two clubs, including Aaron Heilman, Philip Humber, and Joe Blanton. And Lastings Milledge seems likely to go as well. And Delcos just got finished speaking to Omar Minaya directly.
Meanwhile, Matthew Cerrone checks in to indicate that a deal involving Harden seems unlikely. That is reasonable given Harden’s health issues in recent years.
