The Mets need a starter with Mike Pelfrey done for the season. Now I know, as well as you do, that Sandy and Co. are going to use every option they have in the minor leagues to fill the spot. But you know as well as I do that all the kids down there are simply not ready.
So today’s question is not whether the Mets should go and either pick up a pitcher who has not been picked up by a team yet (such as a Roy Oswalt) or trade for one.
But will they? Will the Mets pull some trigger and pick up a pitcher and spend some money?
