Offseason Prediction #1: Flush to Flushing

The Mets have a bit of a fetish when it comes to ex-Yankees, and that applies to the bullpen, too. Remember how well Mike Stanton worked out? Or Felix "I was injected by Giambi" Heredia? Or Jason Anderson? The Mets also have a fetish for people who can't pitch in a big game, like Armando Benitez.

So my pick for the Mets' first signing to fix up their beleagured bullpen is good ol' Flush Gordon. He's got the Yankee mystique going for him, and between him and Roberto Hernandez, the Mets bullpen might give the Junkees' rotation a run for its money in the age department.

George King has some more details on NY relief hot stove rumors.
