The Mets are four games into the second half of their season, and things aren't looking very good. Sam Maxwell and Rich Sparago will chat at 6 pm about what has gone wrong in 2014, and what to expect for the rest of this season. Will the Mets be active at the trade deadline? If they are, will they be buyers or sellers?

Will the Mets trade Bartolo Colon? How about Daniel Murphy? Sandy Alderson says the Mets are better than their record, since they have a respectable run differential. Is this valid? Or is it a way to sell the 2014 team to the fans? Does Terry Collins seem like "the guy", or is he being set up to be "the fall guy"?

This week, the Mets family lost Frank Cashen, the srchitect of their last World Series title, some 28 years ago. We'll take some time to remember Mr. Cashen, and how he went about building a winner. Is Sandy Alderson on the right path to doing so? We'll have some thoughts on that too!
