If the New York Mets weren’t interested in seeing you play baseball for their team this season, you’re a member of a very small club. Links to free agents and Mets trade rumors ran rampant all winter long. As Opening Day approaches, they will slow down temporarily.

However, there is this little thing called the trade deadline at the end of July. When that nears, Mets trade rumors begin to swirl yet again.

We know the Mets didn’t do everything speculated about. Always leaving room for improvement, these are three Mets trade rumors from the winter we could see the club revisit.

Mets trade rumors involving Kris Bryant shouldn’t go away permanently

The Chicago Cubs aren’t trying to compete their hearts out this season. With Kris Bryant nearing free agency, it makes a lot of sense for them to deal the former MVP if they fall out of the playoff race completely.

Mets trade rumors involving Bryant are some of the longest of the offseason. As soon as the Cubs began cutting down payroll, it seemed like trading Bryant was next.

The Mets look prepared to go into the season with J.D. Davis as their starting third baseman. A lot can happen between now and the end of July. If the price on Bryant comes down, it’s quite possible we see New York pull the trigger on a deal and rent Bryant for a stretch run.

A few things do need to happen. The Cubs need to lose all hope, the Mets need to be serious, and an upgrade must be a requirement. If Davis hits like he did in 2019, focus could go elsewhere for the Amazins.
