NY Post's Joel Sherman, The Red Sox have talked to the Mets and have interest in Jon Niese.
The Padres and Rockies are among the teams interested in Niese, tweets Sherman. The Padres could get in on Niese but have not engaged yet, adds Andy Martino.
Among young players, the Mets are talking the most about Jonathon Niese rather than Davis, tweets Joel Sherman. Niese, 25, is under team control through 2015 and could be an alternative for teams that find Oakland's asking price too high for Gio Gonzalez.
It would be interesting to see how creative the Mets will be to upgrade this roster, if they dare to show they have some balls...
