08:11 AM ET 03.27 | Though their spring has been mostly quiet, the Mets may be making some noise soon. In desperate need of clearing several spots, the Mets have put out word to other teams that they are interested in moving non-core prospects on the 40-man roster. Among those available via trade: Gonzalez Germen, Darin Gorski, Reese Havens, Juan Lagares, Cesar Puello, Elvin Ramirez and Hansel Robles. Assuming Omar Quintanilla takes the 40-man roster spot vacated by Brandon Hicks, the Mets still would need to clear at least four 40-man spots: for Aaron Laffey, Marlon Byrd, LaTroy Hawkins and Scott Atchison. If Mets officials are unable to trade prospects on the 40-man roster for other teams' farmhands not on the 40, they will have to start placing them through waivers at the end of the week to clear spots.

If they are non-core prospects than why is this even a story

The Mets team is comprised of non-core players, oncewasers and navel lint - people in Brooklyn KILL for stories about such intriguing stuff.

Mets and desperate always seem to go together well.

They're trying to clear roster spots for 4 journeyman ballplayers that nobody else would want.

Making some noise with the bottom of your 40 man roster? You must be joking.

With their moves it would seem they're desperate to clear seats at Citi Field as well...

I think it's just another way of showing how terribly the Mutts are run...
