Quiet today...

Richard Durrett has a piece on the Rangers meeting with Torii Hunter, but there's not a whole lot of substance...they met, the Rangers are interested, and Hunter is evaluating his options.

New York Newsday discusses the Mets interest in Gerald Laird:

On the catching front, the Mets would like to trade for either Baltimore's Ramon Hernandez or Texas' Gerald Laird. Having negated a three-year, $14.4-million deal with free- agent catcher Yorvit Torrealba, the Mets think their own free-agent catcher, Paul Lo Duca, is asking for too many dollars (a raise from his $6.25-million salary of 2007) and years (three or four). They don't view free agents Michael Barrett and Jason Kendall as attractive options.

At the moment, the Mets view the asking prices for Hernandez and Laird as too high. One official familiar with the Mets' thinking predicted that no moves will be made, for either a catcher or a starting pitcher, before the Dec. 3-6 winter meetings in Nashville.
