Re: Livan close to deal with the Mets
At present the Mets are trying to work on a trade for Santana. They will not be signing any free agents if that goes through. As for Livan, you can look at it both ways. He would give us innings and keep us in ballgames, but he would also not miss bats and surrender a lot of home runs. I think he is the best FA option(not saying much), so I might consider a 1 year deal. It does not look like any of the remaining SP free agents will get longer than 1 year.
