A couple of links for you today on The Hunt for Roy's October:
NY Post, following last night's loss and an injury to prospect Jenrry Mejia:
This injury, though, is even more reason for the Mets to make a deal. Last night could be a sign of things to come if the Mets don’t add reinforcements. At the least they should be paging Roy Oswalt.
The loss made the Mets 3-9 on the road against the NL East. That’s not going to get it done. Several Mets told me that management “has to step up and add a pitcher.”
Noted Manuel: “I think every club that is in the position we’re in, is looking to solidify that. Just like anybody in baseball would think, the best way to solidify that is pitching. I wouldn’t be against it.”
Joe Torre, on Lee/Oswalt:
"Those guys have proven they're top of the rotation guys. They're experienced Cy Young-type individuals, the type of pitchers that can certainly help the ballclub. I don't think there's any question about that...Somebody they can learn from, and even though it may not be a verbal learning, it may just be watching the way they go about their business, and not having to carry all that weight yourself as a young inexperienced guy."
