07:18 AM ET 11.22 | The Mets are looking into trades for Chicago's Bobby Jenks, Seattle's J.J. Putz and Colorado's Huston Street, and there's no reason to think they wouldn't inquire about Houston's Jose Valverde, as well. However, teams with viable closers have targeted a combination of the Mets' four best prospects: outfielder Fernando Martinez (who's tearing it up in winter ball), plus pitchers Jon Niese, Bobby Parnell and Eddie Kunz, and the Mets are reluctant to trade their premium prospects after dealing four others to land superstar pitcher Johan Santana last winter.
