Mets have interest in Chris Snyder?

UPDATE (2:36 p.m. ET): The New York Post suggests that the Mets could have interest in free agent catcher Jason Varitek. Varitek still has a 3 million dollar player option for the 2010 season, but if he declines that option the Mets could make a move. 

The Mets reportedly have some interest in acquiring Diamondbacks catcher Chris Snyder, according to the New York Post. The Mets dangled Luis Castillo in an attempt to swap bad contracts, but the Diamondbacks were not interested. 

The Mets are looking to add a power bat behind the plate, with their eyes on Snyder, Bengie Molina, and Yorvit Torrealba. While they would love to add Matt Holliday or Jason Bay, they may have a tough time luring to the spacious Citi Field. 

Adam LaRoche would be a legitimate replacement at first baseman, and they could look to swap Luis Castillo-for-Milton Bradley, which the Cubs appear to be interested in doing to some extent. 

With Miguel Montero emerging for the Diamondbacks, expect the Diamondbacks to make a strong push to move Snyder.
