Searching for starting pitchers for the Mets on the trade market

The Mets are in first place in the National League East, a position that they will have held for two months straight come tomorrow. And while their offense has proven capable of coming through late in games, the team is in first primarily because of its pitching, as the Mets’ lineup has the second lowest number of runs scored per game in all of baseball.

The Mets rank third in baseball with a 3.35 ERA as a team, and Mets starting pitchers have a 2.96 ERA that is the best in baseball. Those numbers have largely been put together by the Mets’ big three starters: Jacob deGrom, Taijuan Walker, and Marcus Stroman.
