With about two weeks to go until the MLB trade deadline, the Mets are certain to make at least one significant trade to help improve their team as it attempts to make a run for a postseason berth for the first time since 2006.

The Mets are expected to acquire at least one reliever, whether it be a left-handed specialist, a closer or both. They are also expected to possibly trade for another right-handed bat. If the Mets can pull off a great trade or two, it could definitely improve their chances of staying in the race.
