The Mets joke of an off season continues. They have reportedly signed former Rockies chump, Josh Fogg to a minor league deal in hopes he can with the 5th spot in the roster. I will not begin to get into his stats, its embarrassing. Suffice it to say, he makes Tim Redding look like an ace. Talk about an underwhelming pitcher, wow.
Is it me, or does it look like that the Mets could have skipped signing all these scrubs to minor league deals and ponied up for a decent starter? I know the free agent class has been not great, but the team doesn't even have a 5th starter. Spending under $5 million for Jon Garland for the 5th spot would have been bad? How about signing Pedro for the 5th spot? He cannot make a whole season, but why not sign him for around $4-$5 million, give him an extra day off for the beginning of the season, and ride him as long as possible. By the time he fizzles, gets hurt, or the league figures him out, bring up Jonathan Niese or another AAA guy.
