It sounds like Reyes could be gone, Wright might be too.... If the price is right?

These are the most recent messages from Sandy Alderson, the team’s general manager, came Thursday night in an interview broadcast on SNY. Interpret them as you will.

Alderson said that the Mets had met on a number of occasions with Jose Reyes’s agents, but that the conversations were not substantiative in terms of what it might take to sign the free-agent shortstop.

Alderson is viewed as a shrewd general manager, one unafraid of making an unpopular move. But he once again emphasized that signing star players was a multifaceted process that involved taking into account the desires of the fan base.

“Ultimately what you try to do is not keep the entire team together, but you try to keep the core of players together with whom the fans identify most closely,” Alderson said. “Any franchise has a handful of those players.”

Reyes clearly fits into that category. Alderson said such status would play some sort of role as he and his staff considered how much money they ultimately wanted to offer to him.

“When you think about those players, you’ve got to take into account that aspect of the situation — and it’d be foolish not to,” Alderson said. “Again, that doesn’t dictate the result. But it should be a consideration. Whatever happens, I don’t mind admitting that’s a factor.”

David Wright could be traded this off-season to the Angels?

According to Joel Sherman of the NY Post, The Mets seem open to trading David Wright if the right offer came along..

Joel Sherman indicates the team the Mets are focusing upon the most is the Angels, who they know have had interest in Wright previously and, in Mike Trout and Peter Bourjos, have two young center fielders.

The Angels will not move Trout, who made his major league debut at 19 last year and is seen as a five-tool cornerstone to their future.

But Bourjos is a possibility. Two different talent evaluators told Sherman that they thought Bourjos was one of the three best defensive center fielders in the majors last year. Bourjos, who turns 25 in March, also hit .271 with 12 homers and 22 steals.

Rumor Mill: Mets to explore the trade market for David Wright

The New York Post's Joel Sherman reports that the Mets will likely at least explore the market for Wright, but there's not a good chance he'll be moved.

"We'll explore Wright's market," a team official told Sherman. "I think considering where we are as an organization, it would be foolish not to at least look at it. However, I expect actually pulling the trigger is a long shot."

The Mets have had reported financial issues, so moving Wright could make sense. He's guaranteed $15 million for the 2012 season, and New York also has a team option for 2013. If they don't renew that option, they're on the hook for a $1 million buyout.

Rumor Mill: Olney says, "parade of teams" are forming ask the availability of David Wright

According to's Buster Olney, a "parade of teams" are forming to ask the Mets about the availability of third baseman David Wright.

Among the suitors could be the Arizona Diamondbacks, Olney says.

And recently, Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post said the Colorado Rockies are expected to be "aggressive in their pursuit" of the soon-to-be 29-year-old this winter.

The Mets reportedly are not interested in trading the slugger as of yet.  If the right deal presented itself, you might have to ponder it.  Hey the Mets have not gotten better since 2006 , only worse..    - DD
