    Mets Close To Deal With Brandon Lyon

    Brandon lyon close to a deal with #mets
    Good pickup if they can complete the deal, and certainly better the alternative closing options still on the market.

    It's a tremendous deal.. Especially if SA still pursues a viable closer. Although signing Lyon would most likely rule Wilson out. But FF, Parnell, Lyon, Edgin, Hawkins/Atchinson is still a good solid 5 as long as someone can come and push FF back an inning or two.

    Absolutely. We had a horrid bullpen. If it can just become average, it'll go a long way towards fixing the team's problems.

    Yeah he has been very consistent over the last 4 seasons aside from 2011 when he had bicep surgery.

    It's a good move because he also has previous closing experience if and when FF starts to suck.

    I would rather give Lyon 4 or 5 million than Valverde if that's what they end up signing him for.

    He was very effective against LH batters last year.

    They only hit .213 against him..

    This would be a pretty solid deal. Hope it gets done. I honestly didn't know he was available until someone brought it up in another thread.

    Again, potentially deep bullpen. But they're clearly not enthused by Frank Francisco. So the back end is not ideal.

    Can confirm Lyon is indeed close to joining #Mets. Will be interesting to see how his role jives with Francisco's.

    I hope they sign him. He could be a very good signing. He could really help the bullpen.

    Want to make clear: Deal not done with Brandon Lyon, but I'm expecting it will be.

    Awesome, someone said a few days ago Lyon might be the guy.

    Only good deal if we're still in the market for a closer

    Good possible signing. He could be very very solid for the Mets.

    So our pen would look like: Francisco, Lyon, Parnell, Edgin, Feliciano, Hawkins, and Atchison?

    I think I'd like Valverde for the right price too, then our pen looks much deeper.

    Lyon probably ends shopping for bullpen help. Although I would love to add Valverde

    Pen: Valverde, Parnell, Francisco, Lyon, Edgin, Hawkins, Feliciano/Carson, Atchinson/Familia/Mejia = Potentially Filth..

    Valverde and Lyon become huge pieces that move FF and Parnell to respectable roles. This bullpen could be top 10 and go a far way to keep 2013 a competitive team.

    ... Or at least make us one of the deepest bullpens in the league for sure
