Mets Kick The Benson Tires

From Shea Nation:

Barry M. Bloom at writes about the teams who went to see Kris Benson throw 60 pitches in Arizona on Monday. Among the many teams were the Mets:

It was 60 degrees and sunny on Monday in Phoenix as scouts gathered to watch Benson take his surgically repaired arm out of mothballs. Among the group were members of the Yankees, Mets, Astros, Nationals and Phillies, all looking for pitching help.

Reports were good, as Benson showed little wear and tear after missing the 2007 season in Baltimore because of surgery to repair a torn labrum. Benson felt no pain, said his agent, Greg Clifton.

....Added by Ty Flo....

I really don't think that Kris Benson will want to return to the Mets. In his last tenure with the team, his wife messed it all up for him. He was the #3 starter on an up and coming team. She wanted out, so he got dumped to Baltimore. Anna Benson wears the pants in his household, not Kris. Now im not complaining that we dont have him anymore, we have John Maine. Ill take Maine over Benson anyday.. that was by far the top trade Omar Minaya has made with the Mets.
