Mets Should Sign Teixeira
With the Yankees picking up
, the free agent market just got a little thinner. So in this case, the Mets should try and get
. The Amazin's were fortunate enough to sign K-Rod to make up for Billy Wagner, but Teixeira would give their lineup a formidable bat and would strike another blow against the Phillies.
Teixeira will turn 29 next year and will be a youthful alternative to Carlos Delgado. The Mets get an upgrade in batting average and fielding. Teixeira would make a very good number five hitter and has the tools to follow Carlos Beltran.
The Mets need to focus on their bullpen, too. K-Rod was a good start, but trading for Huston Street might be a good next step. Street is young and will add more depth to the bullpen. The Mets should look at trading for a middle reliever (Matt Capps) or two. The Mets have suffered two humiliating seasons in a row. Let's not make it a third.
