08:11 AM ET 12.21 | Could a return engagement in New York be on the horizon for Carl Pavano -- this time in Queens? According to multiple industry sources, the Mets have reached out to the representative for Carl Pavano, dubbed "American Idle" by The Post during the right-hander???s Yankees years, as one of many lines cast in an effort to re-stock their starting rotation following R.A. Dickey???s trade to Toronto. In fact, Pavano isn???t even the only member of the 2012 Twins who sits on the Mets??? radar. The club also has reached out to left-hander Francisco Liriano and many of the other remaining free-agent pitchers, including 2011 and 2012 Met Chris Young and Shaun Marcum, who spent the last two seasons with Milwaukee.

If you are the Mets why would you go after damage and worn out arms knowing you are not going to win next year anyway.

It makes them look like they are "trying" to rebuild for some semblence of respectibility. And for some fans - that's all they need. But letting RA go - given that his price was actually reasonable in today's market - I don't think they can make the perception stick.
