Depth to their bullpen? 

Today, the Mets traded Karim Garcia to the Orioles for Mike DeJean. Here is what Mets GM Jim Duquette had to say about the trade:
Well, Jim, I hope you can turn him around as well as you turned Hidalgo around, because your "added depth" consists of a pitcher with a 6.13 ERA and a .308 BAA this year. He strikes out about a guy an inning, but he also walks a ton of guys and lets up a ton of hits. If he could regain his form from 2002, it's a good trade, but if not, then why did they trade for a guy when they could have brought up some minor leaguer for much less money and the same 6.00 ERA?
