FLASH: RP Matt Thorton

Email:  Phlavio to me:

The White Sox are trying to move reliever Matt Thornton, who has two years,$12 million remaining on his contract.

There may be a match here for the Mets and White Sox to make a deal.  Now... The Mets trade money (I don't know how much) and Bay to the Sox for Thornton.  Matt can fill the closer role or the Mets would still be free to pursue a closer like Frank Francisco and use Thornton as a over-priced setup guy.

Chicago can use Bay in the OF assuming that Viciedo IS a 3B
