Happy Thanksgiving : Mets need a Catcher

As we begin our thanksgiving day here in the cool east we take a moment to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. Hopefully everyone will enjoy the day with the family, the bird will not be dried out and there wont be any discussion of why the Mets should trade Reyes and go after some guy named Jeter.

The Mets need to start looking at what they are lacking on the 25 man roster and besides of course pitching they do need to think of having a backup catcher to Josh Thole, Henry Blanco I am sure will not be back. He played very sparingly due to his bad back. The list below is who is available has of now.

 Rod Barajas 35,Josh Bard 33,Henry Blanco 39, Gerald Laird 31,Bengie Molina 36,*Miguel Olivo 32, A.J. Pierzynski 34,*Yorvit Torrealba 32, Matt Treanor 35,Jason Varitek 39,Gregg Zaun 40.

Olivo was offered arbitration as well as Torrealba so you would have to give up a second round pick. Barajas woke up once he was picked up by the Dodgers but now the Red Sox are looking to sign him since they lost oout on Martinez. Not sure if A J will be moving from the White Sox . Slim pickings but the Mets could use someone to assist Thole .
