Rockies shortstop Troy Tulowitzki might soon be on the trading block. But don’t expect the Mets to get him.
The Mets could certainly use a shortstop, though there are risks involved and acquiring him might not be practical.
When will David Wright be back in the lineup? Nobody knows — not even Mets general manager Sandy Alderson.
The phrase that must have reverberated through Alderson and Cashman’s heads this week sounds like the same one heard outside any casino in Vegas: “You win some, you lose some.”

Lagares, 26, is one of the best defensive center fielders in baseball. He’s expected to lead off for New York in 2015.
“I am satisfied that the New York Mets have a very strong desire to be successful on the field, and that they’re making decisions directed at being successful on the field.”
Montero continued to bolster his case on Monday, allowing two hits in six scoreless innings against the Marlins. He struck out six and didn’t issue a walk.
