According to David Lennon of Newsday, the Mets "remain very interested" in free agent catcher Ivan Rodriguez. The Mets are unsure about Ramon Castro as a complement to Brian Schneider. MetsBlog’s Matthew Cerrone notes Bart Hubbuch’s report from February 16th, indicating the Mets are not interested in Pudge.
Lennon says a strong showing by Rodriguez in the WBC could cause their pursuit to "heat up quickly." Many believe the Marlins are still a strong possibility for him.
