Report: Mets get Gary Matthews from the Angels


Heyman tweets it.  Details to come later.

I can only hope for the Mets’ sake that the Angels are either throwing in someone useful or else they’re eating a bunch of that money (UPDATE: Heyman says they will eat a lot of money).

Either way, this smells like panic over the Carlos Beltran knee thing.  Why not sign Johnny Damon? He’s not going to cost that much and, unlike Matthews, will actually, you know, hit.
