Trading Bartolo Colon and Daniel Murphy would be a mistake. One is an effective innings eater and the other is a professional hitter. Keep them both.
As far as what teams are looking for from the Mets when it comes to trade talk, I think we can all spell this together: an eight-letter word that begins with “P.”
Monday’s starter, Bartolo Colon, might be the most attractive trade bait. But Sandy Alderson suggested the veteran may be an even more valuable asset in the offseason.

With the MLB trade deadline just two weeks away, it’s time to see who could potentially be on the move in late July.
Bartolo Colon came within seven outs of a perfect game, giving up a single to Robinson Cano with two outs in the seventh inning, and the New York Mets held off a late rally to beat the Seattle Mariners 3-2 on Wednesday.
The Mets may have a nibble on hefty right-hander Bartolo Colon. The San Francisco Giants have shown an interest in the 41-year-old starter, according to ESPNDeportes.com.
As it turns out, there’s not much of a market for 41-year-old scale-tipping hurlers. The Mets haven’t gotten “even a nibble” on veteran Bartolo Colon, according to the Post.
Whatever that run leading into the All-Star break was, it has to continue if the Mets are to try to add a significant piece or two this season. So was the missive handed down by general manager Sandy Alderson on Friday.
What will they do at the trade deadline? That’s the question that will follow the Yankees and Mets around once the All-Star break ends.
According to a report, not only will the Mets entertain offers for veteran pitcher Bartolo Colon, but they will look to upgrade at both shortstop and left field.
It might have been asking too much for Bartolo Colon to become an offensive force out of that spot. Still, there was some clear thinking from manager Terry Collins.
Aaron Harang allowed four hits in seven innings, and the Atlanta Braves used early offense against Bartolo Colon to beat the New York Mets 3-1 on Thursday night and avert a four-game sweep.
Colon (8-6, 3.88 ERA in 16 starts), was one of the Mets’ major additions in free agency. But he might not make it a full season in Queens.
The Mets entered their series finale in Atlanta on Wednesday 37-47 and general manager Sandy Alderson said a course of action would be charted out over the next 10 days to two weeks.
