From MLBTR: Mets Will Turn To Ted LillyIt appears to me that the Mets were always more interested in Lilly than Lee.   Most likely because of the ridiculous prospect cost for Lee.   While Lilly is no Lee, the marginal difference in wins between the 2 could not be worth the difference in prospects.The drawback is currently Lilly is not on the market.   However, the Mets need to push the Cubs by letting them know that they will not wait.UPDATE: For consideration, Lilly's contract has one year left at 12M.   Based on my quick math that means he is still owed around 5M.
