Meet the Mets

The Mets had the day off, but the hot stove continued to boil. The most likely Met to be traded seems to be Devin Mesoraco, but the team reportedly hasn’t liked the offers it’s received for him yet.

According to Buster Olney, the Mets plan to contend next season and aren’t going to trade any of their starting pitchers unless a crazy offer comes along.
