Now, don't start getting dreams of Zack Greinke, Mets fans, lower your standards (surely, by now, you're used to this, aren't you?)
Anyway, Puma writes Mets general manager Sandy Alderson has already talked to the Cubs about Tom Gorzelanny (pictured). If that doesn't excite you, the team has talked, at least internally, about finding a way to shoehorn in arbitration-eligible right-hander Matt Garza, who is under team control through the 2013 season.
The team has talked to free-agent right-hander Chris Young, who is a big risk, and has apparently passed on lefty Jeff Francis, who was asking for $4 million for next season.
So rest easy, Phillies, you're still on track to have the best rotation in the division next season.
