MLB Trade Rumors is reporting that Billy Wagner will have Tommy John surgery and miss the entire 2009 season. This really hurt the Mets for this year’s chances and for next year it hurts an already terrible bullpen. Omar Minaya will be busy in the offseason for pitching. One guy that makes perfect sense is Francisco Rodriguez. He is a free agent that says he likes New York and the Mets are a contender without a closer that need one and have a lot of money to spend. The Mets are now the perfect fit for K-Rod. If they somehow miss out, don’t be surprised if they go after Brian Fuentes, Kerry Wood, or Brandon Lyon. Those are the other good closers on the free agent market. You can see the closer market here. I have a feeling the Mets are going to spend a lot on pitching this offseason.
