    Kyle Gibson is someone else I would also consider.

    The Mets do not want to trade Francisco Álvarez, Brett Baty, or others top prospects as the trade deadline approaches (via

    RF is covered when Conforto leaves. Brandon Nimmo finally becomes the RF, which is where he belongs. LF will be the revolving door but the Mets will likely mix and match with Dom Smith, Pillar and others. CF is where they need to go the free agent approach.

    3b is a stop gap until Vientos, but more importantly Baty will be in a year or 2. No need to clog it up. That said, Donaldson should be finished with his 4 year deal when Baty is ready.

    One thing I say a lot to a lot of people around me in the game is we’ve got to remember that baseball is not the NBA,” Scott said. “It’s not one person [who] has the opportunity to make as big of an impact. That’s not to go down a slippery slope and say, ‘Why trade for any rental, then, if it’s not going to make an impact?’ You don’t want to go down that far. But the reality is the game is designed to limit the impact of a single player, whether that’s a starting pitcher or a hitter. So we have to be smart.”
    This goes in line with the Mets reported interested in Asdrubal Cabrera. I mean if he's depth, fine but not the type of player I really want to see the Mets headline as a bat at the deadline.

    I'm still concerned the need will be for BP then SP by the deadline..they been ridden hard overall..and already seeing cracks in Castro. And we know Lugo can't be used repeatedly often....2nd half schedule being tough (west coast) ..think reinforcements should mlbe on tap there and there should be several options like there usually is.

    I mean no GM will ever say that their team desperately needs this or that or is interested in improving in this area.

    The problem with Mets is that as far as offense goes they been without their starters for a while till now and they may feel that what they have is enough specially if guys that struggled are not hitting better like Smith and Lindor.

    The rotation is a different animal because guys are now hurt long term and have zero depth.

    Bryant and Arrietta for Vientos and a low level spec

    My trade target candidates I would like to see the Mets acquire:

    1. German Marquez
    2. Kris Bryant
    3. Craig Kimbrel
    4. Kyle Hendricks
    5. Jose Berrios
    6. Jose Ramirez

    I’d be ecstatic if we got Marquez and Bryant. They are 2 guys that would really help big time to bolster both the rotation and lineup and would be fine those 2 as our deadline acquisitions (the 2 I want the most). I know our bullpen has been good already, but damn can you imagine if we added Kimbrel to it. Sign me up for a late inning combo of Lugo/Kimbrel/Diaz to close the last 3 innings. Hendricks and Berrios would be great adds as well. Jose Ramirez I know is a long shot. But hey can’t blame me for trying, sometimes there are surprises when you least expect them.

    In the end, should be a fun deadline to see who the Mets pursue and acquire.

    Bryant would cost a JT Ginn type or Alex Rameriz/Carlos Cortes.

    He is a rental.

    That is not what I've seen or heard of Nimmo's arm. It is supposedly stronger and more accurate than Conforto's arm. Where has that been shared by the scouts or Mets organization?

    In any case, Conforto will never get the big contract that Borass will try to get for him - not with this dismal season.

    Don’t think we have seen the same player.

    Nimmo has a noddle arm man.

    FYI Bryant is batting under .200 in his last 30 games and Arrieta sucks
    I’m not high on Vientos, but I wouldn’t send one of our better prospects for those two
