09:27 AM ET 11.16 | The Mets plan on looking much different on Opening Day than they do right now -- they just haven't figured out how to do it yet. One day after coach Terry Collins said the Mets need someone to protect David Wright in the middle of the lineup, general manager Sandy Alderson added he was open to trading arms for a bat. "People have inquired about pitching," Alderson said on WFAN. "Pitching is something we want to conserve, but in the right deal, pitching is available." Since the free-agent market is not deep, Alderson might have to surrender an arm in order to improve what is now a woeful offense.
