    Mets interested in Garate, Galarraga

    http://espn.go.com/blog/new-york/met...rate-galarraga
    The Mets have expressed interest in signing left-hander Victor Garate and right-hander Armando Galarraga, Venezuelan journalist Rafael Tejera reports. Tejera adds that both pitchers have offers from Asian ballclubs.

    Mets contracts would be minor-league deals undoubtedly.

    Garate, 29, made four relief appearances with the Washington Nationals in 2009. He worked last season as a starting pitcher in Mexico, posting a 3.78 ERA in 100 innings with Saltillo.

    Galarraga, 31, last appeared in the majors when he produced a 6.75 ERA in five starts for the Houston Astros in 2012. He pitched at Triple-A Colorado Springs and Louisville last season, posting a combined 3.64 ERA in 23 starts in the Cincinnati Reds and Colorado Rockies organizations.
    What are the odds the Mets get outbid by an Asian ball club?

    Good God! Could they be scraping any farther down in the barrel? The good news is, both of these guys will be playing overseas.

    They are doing the same thing every team is doing. Adding depth and throwing bullpen arms against the wall to see if one sticks. Time to freak out.

    if they want the guys on minor league deals they'll probably get outbid by the asian ballclub lol

    only notable thing is Galarraga is the Tigers pitcher that got his perfecto taken back by the horrible blown safe call at 1B that should have been the last out. 2011 i think?

    without that, and without all the retweets from freaking out mets fans, nothing to see here.

    I'm not unless they're for depth.
