The New York Mets are sitting at fourth place in a deep NL East division—already 7.5 games back of the Philadelphia Phillies.
Their financial concerns are no secret, and they will most likely be looking to move a few pieces as soon as possible.
My gut says they will keep David Wright, but if someone makes them a strong offer it may be hard to refuse. Jose Reyes may be more likely to be shipped off—although it depends on whether Fred Wilpon & Co. decide they want to open the checkbook to keep Reyes around past 2011.
The Mets' brass have made it clear that they are going to reduce payroll heading into 2012, but that does't necessarily mean they can't re-sign Reyes. However, his resurgence this season may bump up his asking price enough for Wilpon to take a pass.
Carlos Beltran will probably be shipped to whoever is willing to take on the largest portion of his contract and Francisco Rodriguez may end up as the setup man or closer on a contender come early July.
It also wouldn't be surprising to see Mike Pelfrey or R.A. Dickey moved. Pelfrey continues to disappoint and may benefit from a change of scenery, while Dickey is 36 years old and may be able to bring back some decent prospects in return.
