So far this off-season the Mets have been somewhat quiet only bringing in Boof Bonser, Ronny Paulino and D.J. Carrasco. Bonser can be a solid spot-starter for the Mets while Paulino will be a nice addition to have behind the plate to backup Josh Thole. Carrasco is who I feel to be the Mets' best pickup so far. Carrasco will be a great addition to a bullpen that has lost the likes of Pedro Feliciano.
The problem with the Mets this off-season is that they have not yet filled a role that is vital, the fifth spot in the rotation. Sandy Alderson has said the he does not expect the Mets to make any moves until the new year but this spot is something that needs to be filled quickly. Yesterday, the Mets lost their shot at getting Brandon Webb who signed with the Rangers. This just goes to show a fifth starter must be chosen soon.
There are several candidates that could fill this role for the Mets, may it be Chris Young, other free agents, or some guys who are already on the team.
