It's tough to know how to proceed during a season in which everything that could go wrong has The Mets would probably like to trade all their pending free agents, but outfielder Curtis Granderson has had a wildly inconsistent and not particularly good season, second baseman Neil Walker might still need a few more days to make it back from the DL and infielder Jose Reyes’s recent hot streak doesn’t mitigate his badly declining skill set.

The good news is that there are still trade candidates, like slugging first baseman Lucas Duda (currently healthy, for a change), outfielder Jay Bruce (later-career bounce-back season) and infielder Asdrubal Cabrera, who still offers a club option for 2018 and could at least be a depth piece for a contender. The best offers might be for Addison Reed, the fill-in closer who’s excelled in Jeurys Familia’s absence and has drawn interest from a long list of teams.
