LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- The Mets met Tuesday with the agent for Bartolo Colon, Sweeny Murti reported.

While the 40-year-old Colon would receive the type of short-term deal that makes sense for the Mets, the dollars he should command would appear above the team's desired price range.

Colon went 18-6 with a 2.65 ERA in 30 starts for the Oakland Athletics last season.
