Mets Should Push For Garland

As Ed pointed out the day, the White Sox are getting ready to get going with an almost Fire Sale off season to bring in the young talent they so desperately need. If the Mets are going to be biting on the bait, then there are only a few pitchers I could see them going after.

One of those players would have to be right handed pitcher Jon Garland.

Garland is only 28 and has a reasonably middle of the rotation EAR (4.23 in 2007 and a 4.41 lifetime). Garland does, however has 36 wins for the 2005 and 2006 seasons, which is tied for the most wins in that time. Having an off year might bring his trade value down and might make the White Sox susceptible to asking for only one prospect in return.

isn't that garlands picture on ed's post? doesn't that sound like he's already hinting towards him?

Right you are, but I was just pointing it out and putting in the general view. That's why I didn't go into depth with it.

Garland would be a great choice but they are gonna ask for milledge as they always do
