The Mets are not going to pursue any big name outfielders

The Mets outfield is a pretty ugly mess, but don’t think the free agent market is gonna fix it. Andy Martino reports:

Let’s do this once, to save us a winter of speculation: B.J. Upton? No. Michael Bourn? No. Shane Victorino? No. None of these players will be a Met in 2013, according to two high-ranking team insiders … Although the front office has not finalized its offseason strategy, one source said that it was unlikely the Mets will offer any outfielder even a two-year contract.

Kind of explains why they’re not gonna release Jason Bay. They friggin’ need him.  Also: Bobby Bonilla is still under contract. Just sayin’.
