If they are really not just "considering" him, but openly and actively "pursuing" him, I think that tells you where they stand on whether or not there is a forthcoming "fire sale."

Note: they could possible/probably/hopefully still deal Bruce to open up Conforto's spot without really conceding anything and getting maybe *something* of interest back. But I'm not sure you go and sign Bartolo Colon on July 7th and deal Reed/Walker/Cabrera/Bruce/Grandy/Duda in the 3 weeks thereafter.

Then again, they are trotting out Wheeler, Lugo, Matz, (all a pitch away from being done for the year) and Montero (well...) with pretty much nothing else behind them outside of Pill and Flexen until mid-late August. I don't think adding Colon necessarily indicates they are "going for it."

You know I agree with any idea that leads to bodies being moved.

Here's another thought: If the Mets are in "Remember This Guy!" mode with Reyes, maybe his spot on the roster can be replaced with Rosario while Colon is being snuck in to placate the nonsense factory. And then when that explodes, they've got Tebow316 in their back pocket.

Agreed. Was entertained by Bart when here. Not the season for a reunion...

Not following. I don't think Colon would be brought in bc they believe he's going to help them win in '17. He's to plug in some innings so that they don't overuse some SPs with meaningless frames down the stretch.

I'm just shocked 'other' teams have interest in him.

Agreed. They bring him in for the following reasons:

- Cheap starting pitcher who can eat up innings
- Veteran presence in the clubhouse
- Fan favorite who will bring people to the stadium even though they stink.
- The players enjoy having the Big Sexy in the clubhouse.
- Give the Mets the ability to shut down Wheeler for the season.
- Give the Mets some flexibility in trading a SP (DeGrom) if they so choose.

I'm not shocked.... there is a glaring SP need on contending teams...

He doesn't eat innings while getting bombed for 7 runs

Everything this guy does is slow, so not sure why this would be any different.
