The Mets have been looking for a quality starter all season and have set their sights on the soon to be selling White Sox. For the past couple of months, Mets GM Omar Minaya has been in communication with the White Sox about Mark Buehrle and Jose Contreras but are interested in Contreras because he is signed through 2009. Furthermore, Contreras has always been a personal favorite of Minaya's and that could be good for Contreras to pitch under him. This season, Contreras is 5-8 with a 4.63 ERA and 52 K. However, he is 53-35 career with a 4.32 ERA. If any trade were to happen, it would happen after the All Star Game or as soon as the fire sale begins.
