The Mets are turning to the enemy to help boost their starting rotation. They are interested in picking up Tom Glavine as a free agent from the Braves and they are even interested in getting permission from the Braves to talk to Leo Mazzone, the Braves pitching coach, to be their pitching coach.

Leo Mazzone was resigned by the Braves on the same day they granted the Mets permission to talk to him. (Sounds fishy to me...)
December 5, 2002
The Mets have signed Tom Glavine to a 3-year contract, with a team option for a 4th.
January 1, 2003
The Mets have signed free agent outfielder Cliff Floyd and SS Rey Sanchez.
