Mets looking to strengthen bullpen

By Gem Tablak

Mike Puma of of The New York Post reports that the team feels another relief arm is its top priority at come the trading deadline. 

Puma lists Ryan Butcher & Brad Hand of Padres, Chris Withrow of the Braves, John Axford of the A’s, & probably the most expensive of them all in terms of who the Mets would have to give up, Jeremy Jeffers of the Brewers.

I’m all for going out there & getting the help like we did last season but I wouldn’t want the team to acquire a reliever that has a contract that extends into the next season. For one, the less controllability a player has, the less we can give a team in return, however that all depends on the talent the Mets try to acquire.
