Just days after signing Phormer Phillie Chris Coste, the Mets are said to be mulling a contract offer to 12 year veteran C Henry Blanco (above), most recently of the San Diego Padres. It’s a curious move given Jon Heyman’s insistence the Mets are also preparing a two-year pact for backstop Bengie Molina — Omir Santos and Josh Thole are presumably still turning up for Spring Training. Perhaps a long 2009 of difficult math has led Omar Minaya’s paymasters to forget MLB rules only allow one catcher on the diamond at a time.
