Buzz: Mets have Backed Off Shopping Plans

In a rumor-filled report for ESPN.com, Jayson Stark writes:

“The Mets have backed off their shopping plans after their disastrous road trip, though they could also charge back into the August market if they get hot.”

According to Stark, the Dodgers are now looking in to Cubs LHP Ted Lilly, who a team official says will definitely get traded before Saturday’s 4 pm Trade Deadline.

Stark also writes about the market for Jayson Werth, Adam Dunn, Roy Oswalt, Jorge Cantu and others.
