Seriously! Why not?
They've added dysfunction with the squabble with Carlos Beltran.
They've added questionable health with Kelvim Escobar and Jason Bay.
They've added Gary Matthews Jr, a player the Angels wanted to get rid of so badly that they paid $21 million to do it.
And remember this is all added to a 92 loss team in the biggest glaring media market... a team that Bengie Molina, Joel Pineiro, Jon Garland and Ben Sheets all said no to.
So why not sign John Smoltz?
The team has been too old and too injured needs a 43 year pitcher who has been hurt or effective the last few years.
Yes he's a Hall of Famer. So is Whitey Ford!
Maybe the Mets should pick him up too!
Seriously, would someone tell me why the Mets shouldn't be dismantled now?
