The Mets need to make a trade or two soon. But instead of just offering some of their players, they need to think about targeting some of these prospects.

We’re quickly making our way towards the trade deadline and the New York Mets need to do something now.  Everybody’s been talking about the big deals and who the Mets can send their players to.

What if we turned things around just a little bit? Instead of seeing what we can get for certain players or where we can send them, let’s specifically ask what players do we want back? Then we can question our part of the deal later on.

Currently there are tons of rumors and a lot of speculation on who the Mets are going to move, because they have a ton of players who are either good or are nearing the ends of their time with the Mets.

Some of these players, like Jacob deGrom and Noah Syndergaard can bring us back a ton. But of course there are just as many rumors that the Mets wouldn’t move either at all.

Then you have a long list of players such as Zack Wheeler, Jose Bautista, Wilmer Flores, Asdrubal Cabrera, Jeurys Familia, and others who have been popping up in all sorts of trade circles.

Most of those players can also bring back some decent talent from teams making a push for the playoffs.

But instead of putting those players on the block and seeing if there’s any interest or what other teams offer, there’s a different route the Mets could take.

Instead, they should go to these teams and ask about these specific players. They need to find out if they are available, what their price tag will be, and make an offer for one or more of them.
