Mets keep getting shot down asking for top prospects

Jayson Stark of says – in deals for Carlos Beltran – the Mets have asked the Braves for Mike Minor, Julio Teheran or Arodys Vizcaino; they’ve asked the Phillies for Dom Brown or their top pitching prospect, Jarred Cosart; they asked the Giants for Zack Wheeler, the best pitcher in their system, or Gary Brown, their most highly rated outfield prospect; and were told, “No,” each time.

Nevertheless, Stark says, “from all accounts, the Mets still expect somebody to blink, at some point between now and the weekend.”
