    Send that team some Geritol while you're at it.... I'm sure the Giants have a couple cases in the clubhouse.

    Mets Could Still Add Alou
    According to Jon Heyman at Sports Illustrated, some Mets officials still hope to trade for Moises Alou even with Shawn Green already in the fold. An independent source of mine has verified that given Cliff Floyd's inability to stay healthy, the Mets would still like to add Alou.

    Alou has spent plenty of time in his career at both outfield corner positions. He's playing right field for the Giants right now more out of necessity, as his defense can be ugly at age 40. He'll be a free agent after this season, and still mashes when he's on the field. He's hitting .292/.350/.522 this season in 247 ABs. Alou has dealt with a myriad of injuries this season, and would make a great candidate to play in the AL for the first time in his career next season. He's making $6MM this year.

    It would be a great pickup for the Mets, especially since this is the last year of his contract.
    Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2010-2014!

    Hopefully they will get him TODAY.

    Don't we have 7 games left with the Giants?

    This could help us more than it hurts.

    I read on Tuesday that Alou was expected to be out the next 4-5 days.
