Mets: K-Rod is the closer and J.J. Putz will be the primary set-up man, and they certainly have room and a need for a strong left-hander as well. But their focus is on adding a starting pitcher. source ESPN

Buster Olney of ESPN has an article today in which he looks at the market for free agent closer Brian Fuentes. The former Colorado closer has seen his market close ( no pun intended) since both K-Rod and J.J. came to the Mets. Fuentes price could drop so much that he actually makes set-up man money and with the Mets in need of a lefty Olney won't rule them out. My guess would be that if price get that low that he would sign a one year deal as a closer and then try again next year......
