The New York Mets have a big decision to make as they enter the second half of their season as the team needs to decide how serious they are about contending for a division title or a wild card spot in the postseason.
Choosing to contend would mean that the Mets will be looking to make a trade before the deadline passes as they need hitting and they need it even more so of they plan on contending with the Atlanta Braves and Washington Nationals, who sit above them in the standings.
According to Mike Puma from the New York Post, the Mets are not sure if they’ll go out and try to acquire a bat this month before the trade deadline rolls around at the end of July.
Two things I was told today: Mets are still unsure if they will go after a bat, and teams haven’t begun calling about Colon.

The Mets are sitting at 45-50 as they prepare to kick off the second half of their season and they’re seven full games behind the Washington Nationals for the top spot in the N.L. East. That means there is hope for the Mets as they can put together a second half push that sees them land int he postseason once again.
That all could start with the acquisition of a hitter before the deadline.
