Mets Taking A Look At Carl Pavano
According to multiple industry sources, the Mets have reached out to the representative for Carl Pavano, dubbed American Idle by The Post during the right-handers Yankees years, as one of many lines cast in an effort to re-stock their starting rotation following R.A. Dickeys trade to Toronto.
In fact, Pavano isnt even the only member of the 2012 Twins who sits on the Mets radar. The club also has reached out to left-hander Francisco Liriano and many of the other remaining free-agent pitchers, including 2011 and 2012 Met Chris Young and Shaun Marcum, who spent the last two seasons with Milwaukee.
The Mets also have engaged in trade discussions with the Dodgers, who have former Met Chris Capuano and Aaron Harang, neither of whom likely would be in the teams starting rotation if the 2013 season began today.
