Sources said that the plan to use Torres as the starting centerfielder made a reunion with Chavez -- who was a Met from 2006-2008, and made a iconic leaping catch in Game 7 of the 2006 NLCS -- less likely, but that the Mets were still considering it.source Daily News

I figured after they obtained Andres Torres, that Endy Chavez would would be viewed as a duplication of services. At the very least they would be in the market for a right handed center fielder to platoon with Torres should he look more like 2011 then 2010 or a power bat off the bench who could play better corner outfield then Murph. But according to Andy Martino the Mets remained interested in Chavez until he chose the Orioles, I wouldn't be too concerned with the Chavez signing there are plenty of 4th outfielder available...
