Mets Less Likely to get pitching help

With the Trade Deadline right around the corner, the Mets are on the radar for some pitching help. Thus year so far the Mets have gotten some good breaks with their starting pitching. One guy that has come through for the Mets is starting pitcher R.A. Dickey. Dickey has gone 6-3 with a 2.63 ERA and 51 K's in 72 innings.

Within two months, the Mets mindset of bolstering their rotation, has now changed due to the great performances that Dickey has had on the mound. The Mets do not want to part ways with a quality pitcher or player to obtain a quality player. Some players that teams might be interested in from the Mets are: Dickey, Ike Davis, and Niese. All of whom the Mets do not want to get rid of. Ike Davis was the reason the Mets did not get Cliff Lee because the Seattle Mariners wanted Davis.

With that said it does not look like the Mets are willing to make a move, but pitchers such as Brett Myers, Jake Westbrook, Ted Lilly, and Roy Oswalt are still on their radar. All four pitchers would be a great expense and do not seem like they would be a real financial hassel for the Mets. The Mets are going to have to give up quality to give quality and right now they need a big deal to be made this deadline. If fail to do so Met fans be ready to see a whole different GM and possibly a new manager at the helm.
