The question is whether the Mets as an organization have any interest in this season. The possibility exists that perhaps the focus is on 2015, because of the fact that Matt Harvey should be back and top pitching prospect Noah Syndergaard should be in the major league rotation. Then there is the leak that GM Sandy Alderson told ownership that the 2014 team is good enough to win 90 games. He has also said that this particular road trip will be telling towards the Mets plan of action in regards to the trading deadline of July 31st.
I refuse to talk about the "buyers and sellers" terms that are used throughout baseball. If you have listened to me speak, you'd know that the "experts" expect every team that is not winning in a particular season to simply give away their better players for nothing to teams that want to win. And theses "experts" say that it makes sense for non winning teams to want to make the winning teams better right now.
In regards to the Mets, there is truthfully one course of action which will be for the betterment of the club. And that is to make a bold move for a middle of the order bat right now. Unfortunately, that is unlikely to happen. See, the same Mets team that is starved for offense is the same one that needs to win to convince the GM and team President to upgrade the offense, its most glaring need. In other words, a team that has a difficult time scoring runs is being asked to score more runs than they are capable of scoring to convince the GM to add an offensive player that can help them score more runs. Is the prime example of a catch 22 or not?
