Some rumors that Pat Burrell ends up with the Mets in some bizarre three-team deal, but Mets officials are denying it.

Havent heard that but as bad as he is he's an upgrade to what they have. Just not exactly what I was hoping for.

Rumors are the Mets are after the Nat's Josh Willingham. Way better than Burrell but I dont think the Mets have the pitching the Nats would want for him.

Some rumors in Milwaukee about a Corey Hart for John Maine deal, but it doesn't seem to have any legs.

Well, now FoxSports.com reporting the talks are serious but the Mets need to add another pitcher to give them the depth needed to part with Maine.

I keep hearing about this Maine/Hart deal. What the hell are the Mets thinking? This is an incredibly crappy deal.

Maine, despite being plagued by injuries, is still an above-average starting pitcher. He had a fairly high 4.43 ERA last year, but he was very unlucky, because his opponent batting was .224/.318/.358. Best case: a solid #2 starter. Worst case: injured all season. Most likely: So hard to predict injuries, but 130 IP at less than 4.00 ERA is not crazy to ask for.

Hart had one nice (not spectacular) year a couple of year ago, but was way below average for an OF last year. What on earth do the Mets want a guy like this for? You can pick up guys this good for almost nothing in FA without giving up one of your starters. Best case: 20 HR 20 SB OPS below .900. Worst case: BA below .220 in a brutal hitting park. Most likely: .260 hitter with about 10 HR.

Not nearly worth it.

This Met fan agrees

This Phillies fan agrees too...ya gotta question where the thought process originates in deals like this...starting pitching is a valuable commodity-even when coming off an injury or sub-par season...damn, just sign Damon to a one-year 7mil deal if you want a crappy short-term outfielder- at least it won't cost a pitcher...
