Mets (thankfully) weren't serious about Jason Marquis, either

Mar 6, 2010, 11:56 AM EDT

A day after Bengie Molina said he felt the Mets weren’t actually interested in him comes this from Adam Rubin of the New York Daily News:

Jason Marquis says he doesn’t know
what Mets offered him, because he told agent to share only “serious”
offers. … Marquis faces Mets Sun.

Gotta find storylines somewhere, I suppose.

    Marquis isn’t very good, but he’s still better than the guys the Mutts have “contending” for the last rotation spot or two. I think they were interested, but their sequential method for pursuing free agents worked against them as always. Marquis’ streak of making the playoffs will probably end, but he’ll be better off overall.

    I disagree. Jon Niese still has to earn the spot, mind you, but I’d rather bank on the younger, cheaper left-hander. Not saying Oliver Perez is better, but if he’s healthy, he’ll pitch because of the contract. So it comes down to Maine vs. Marquis. It’s a legitimate argument, although Maine costs $3.3 million this season while Marquis is making around $15 mil. guaranteed over the two-year deal.
    Besides, I’m wondering how Castillo at second base would affect Marquis’ numbers. We all saw what it did to Pelfrey. Not sure he’d have the results in New York.
