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.
The Mets apparently had a high asking price for Zack Wheeler and are content to hold on to him given his recent performance and low salary for 2019.
Anthony DiComo talked about the trade situation and more in his weekly mailbag.
Ken Davidoff says the Mets need to spend big in the winter if they hold onto their pitchers.
