Adam Rubin of the New York Daily News has the latest on the Mets:
Catcher - Omir Santos will start if they don't add anyone else. Henry Blanco would be the backup.
Pitching - could add another starter. John Smoltz, Ben Sheets and Jon Garland are options.
First - Carlos Delgado lacks ranger and ability to move to first so Fernando Tatis could return.
Centerfield - Gary Matthews may not start right off the bat. Angel Pagan could get a shot.

The Mets' search for additional starting pitching will take them down to the University of Louisiana at Monroe, where four-time All-Star Ben Sheets is throwing in a showcase for potential suitors, according to a baseball executive with knowledge of the Mets' plans, as reported by the New York Daily News .

After the Yankees' latest moves, GM Brian Cashman will now turn his attention to the rotation and according to a major league source, will "almost certainly" add a starter by New Year's.
The report in the New York Post says Cashman inquired about Carlos Zambrano, but the price was too high.
Some other pitchers the Yankees could target include Jason Marquis, who Cashman has previously acknowledged as a possibility. Ben Sheets who would be a huge gamble. Joel Pineiro, who is seeking a four-year deal, likely won't get that from the Yankees.

A source confirmed to the New York Post that Ben Sheets, 31, would be among a group of second-tier, relatively low-cost starting pitchers the Mets will consider this winter.
The oft-injured Sheets, who last pitched with the Brewers in 2008, has been sidelined since February because of surgery to repair the flexor tendon in his forearm, but he expects to be healthy by spring training.
Free-agent Joel Pineiro, Jason Marquis and Randy Wolf are also in that group.
