With the first half of the 2009 baseball season reaching an end, it is time to start looking towards the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, as the contenders begin to separate themselves from the pretenders.
With the New York Mets, the story for this season has been one of injury and inconsistent play.
Still, despite hovering around the .500 mark, the Mets are only two games behind the Phillies for the NL East division lead, and will look to be buyers when the trade deadline comes around.
So who will be available? Who should the Mets go after? What holes will the Mets be able to fill?
Well, there will be plenty of players available, and some who could be very helpful down the stretch for Omar's warriors in Queens.
