12/17 Mets interested in Gorzelanny?

The New York Post reports the Mets have inquired about Cubs pitcher Tom Gorzelanny. The lefty made $800,000 last year, and will receive a raise through arbitration but would still be a fairly economical addition. Gorzelanny was 7-9 with a 4.09 ERA in 29 games (23 starts) last season with Chicago. You can never have enough pitching, but the Cubs do have a surplus with Carlos Zambrano, Ryan Dempster, Randy Wells, Carlos Silva, plus up and coming youngsters such as Casey Coleman, Chris Carpenter, Chris Archer and Thomas Diamond.

With the Yankees looking for pitching this would make no sense. The Yankees want Zambrano. However, I can see the Mets getting former Cub and now free-agent Derek Lee, who is a bit over priced for teams like the Padres and Nationals.
