Mets Still Interested In Lohse

At Rotoworld they write about the Mets and them still being interested in Kyle Lohse:

According to ESPN's Jayson Stark, a baseball man who had spoken with Mets GM Omar Minaya said the team could end up with both Johan Santana and Kyle Lohse.

Santana's addition alone figures to secure tham a spot as the highest payroll ever for an NL team. Adding Lohse at another $7 million-$9 million per year would just be a drop in the bucket, we suppose. Lohse isn't any better than an of the Mets' starters, assuming the Santana acquisition gets done. However, he can take on a lot of innings, something that can't be said about any of the Mets' non-Santana starters. His addition could result in Orlando Hernandez opening the seaon in the pen.

after the santana deal i dont think there will be room in the budget for him but it lookslike a decent signing for a 5th starter
