07:23 AM ET 11.07 | Cue the '80s pop references. The Mets' intention to "Never Surrender" in their quest for increased home-run production next season has them considering Corey Hart. About a dozen teams have interest in the former All-Star, according to industry sources, and the Mets are among them as they attempt to find legitimate protection for David Wright in the middle of their lineup. But the big question might be whether the Mets view the 31-year-old Hart as a first baseman or outfielder at this point in his career. Hart missed all of last season with the Brewers after undergoing surgery on both knees and there are questions whether he has enough mobility to handle a corner outfield position, even on a part-time basis. Hart batted .270 with 30 homers and 83 RBIs for the Brewers in 2012.

If number 3 leaves the Cards I can see the Birds making a play for Hart.

This is why playing first base would seem to be the best option for a team to keep him on the field.
