New York, NY (Sports Network) - The New York Mets agreed to terms with pitcher Scott Erickson on a minor league contract Thursday.

"I wish spring training started tomorrow," Erickson said. "I'm ready to go. I know a lot of guys on the team, especially John (Franco) and Mike (Piazza). In know there's an opportunity for me here and I'm hoping to make the most of the chance."

The veteran, who is 140-128 with a 4.51 ERA since entering the majors in 1990, is expected to compete for the fifth spot in the rotation behind Al Leiter, Tom Glavine, Steve Trachsel and Jae Weong Seo.

The 36-year-old has missed two of the last three seasons due to injuries.

Erickson was 5-12 with a 5.55 ERA for the Orioles in 2002 before missing the 2003 campaign with a shoulder injury. He was also out of action in 2001 after having Tommy John surgery on his right elbow.

Erickson married Lisa Guerrero, a sideline reporter for Monday Night Football, on February 3 in Hawaii.

I still haven't heard anything about him. Did he just have a bad spring? I thought he could be a big help to the Mets staff.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

If I had seen this post before the season started I would have said they're crazy. Especially since he's missed significant time due to injuries the past couple years. But since I just saw this post for the first time today, I'm posting it now! :-b Oh, almost forgot: He has yet to play a game in a Mets uniform in 2004! :-t
