According to some word of mouth, the Mets are in discussions with the Oakland A's. The A's are looking to shed payroll, while the Mets need a catcher. Zito is not being shopped, but they are listening to offers. Don't be surprised if Castro, Milledge along with Seo and Zambrano are shipped out for Kendall and Zito, while the Mets also bring back Piazza to get his ring. That is something to think about.
