    OT: Mets sign Chan Ho Park

    http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=2759773


    NEW YORK -- Chan Ho Park reached a preliminary agreement with the New York Mets on a $600,000, one-year contract, giving the team another option for its starting rotation heading into spring training.

    His agreement was disclosed by two people familiar with the deal, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the contract had not yet been completed.

    Park was to take a physical Friday in the Los Angeles area, the final step before the deal can be concluded. In addition to his base salary, he could earn $2.4 million in performance bonuses based on innings.

    Park will compete with John Maine, Oliver Perez, Mike Pelfrey and Philip Humber for jobs in the Mets rotation behind Tom Glavine and Orlando Hernandez. Pedro Martinez is expected to be sidelined for the first half of the season.

    A 33-year-old right-hander, Park was 7-7 with a 4.81 ERA in 21 starts and three relief appearances last season for the San Diego Padres. He was slowed by intestinal bleeding during the second half and had surgery Aug. 23. He was activated Sept. 22.

    An All-Star in 2001 with the Los Angeles Dodgers, he has a 113-87 record in 13 major league seasons

    After going 15-11 in 2001, Park agreed to a $65 million, five-year contract with the Texas Rangers. Often injured while with Texas, he was 22-23 in 3-plus seasons with the Rangers, who dealt him to the Padres in July 2005 for Phil Nevin. As part of that deal, Texas agreed to pay the Padres $6.5 million to offset part of his remaining salary.

    We just need to stay a few games above .500 leading up to the trade deadline where we will get either Dontrell Willis or Jake Peavy.

    But no, I am not thrilled with our current staff but it is no worse then last year's.

    Chan Ho Park? Sounds like something you get from Chinese take out.

    Will Moo Goo Gai Pan be a reliever in the bullpen?

    Good chance he starts with the lack of depth in the rotation..Especially with Pedro on the shelf for atleast the 1st half..

    i don't see how it's any worse than what we had going into last season.......

    glavine
    bannister
    martinez
    trachsel
    zambrano


    or this years
    glavine
    el duque
    park
    maine
    perez/pelfrey/humber/bannister..............

    trachsel and zambrano were crap....
    bannister was total unknown who had a couple of OK games

    we'll likely have martinez back by august and then it will look like:

    glavine
    martinez
    el duque
    trade deadline pick-up/park
    maine/perez/pelfrey/bannister/park etc.......

    i'm not too worried...it is a bit unproven but there are young kids here who have nice stuff.
