Weaver and the trade options

At Rotoworld, they write about Jeff Weaver, how the market for him will be heating up and how the Mets might be in the middle of it all:

According to Newsday, the Mets have some interest in Jeff Weaver, the top remaining free agent starter with Barry Zito and Jeff Suppan off the board.

Weaver's market is likely to heat up now. Given his previous struggles with the Yankees, the Mets would be taking quite a chance if they signed him to a multiyear deal. Still, they could use an inning eater and Weaver is well suited for Shea Stadium. The Mets will also likely resume exploring trade possibilities after missing out on Zito, with Dontrelle Willis, Dan Haren, Brad Penny and Jon Garland serving as a few of their potential targets.
