Peter B in New York: "What your thoughts on the Mets going after Melky Cabrera in the off-season? He is only 28 and the Mets need a lead-off hitter and solid outfielder. Many teams may bypass him because of the PED suspension, but perhaps an incentive-laden deal might bring a fresh start for him in New York, where he had some success beforeā€¦ maybe a poll to see what Mets fans think?"

It's hard to speculate on what it will take to sign Cabrera. I can't find any sort of consensus around the league on what his market will be like. The buzz was that he'd seek at least a three-year deal, but then he was suspended. So, who knows what impact that will have.

In a report for CSN Bay Area, reporter Andrew Baggerly says sources tell him the Giants are interested in re-signing Cabrera, despite the suspension.

"It's hard to know how much the PED use fueled his incredible 4 1/2-month run, but many in the front office continue to view Cabrera as a talented two-way player coming into his prime," Baggerly says of the Giants and Cabrera. "And now he'll be a relative bargain on the free-agent market, too."

If I had to bet, I'd say he re-signed in San Francisco. It just makes the most sense for both sides, at this point. That said, if the Giants let him go, I'd probably talk to him (if I was GM of the Mets), but I'm not going crazy to get him. He's a total enigma. I mean, is he the OK player he was for the Yankees? Or, is he the guy that hurt the Braves? Or, is he the guy that hit over .300 and looked strong at the plate the last two years? If so, what impact did PEDs have? If not, is he just a guy coming in to his prime? Or, is he someone who's simply been very lucky for two straight seasons (with exceedingly high Batting Averages on Ball in Play)? I seriously have no idea what to make of Cabrera, and I suspect most fans and teams feel the same way...

Mets RHP Noah Syndergaard will throw a bullpen session on Wednesday, the team said. 

The team said over the weekend that they would like to get Syndergaard in to one more game before the season ended.

Syndergaard sarted and pitched a scoreless inning against the Nationals this past Saturday night in what was his first major league appearance since April 30. He had been out due to a torn lat.

Mets RHP Matt Harvey will be tendered a contract after the season, Jon Heyman of FanRag sports reports, citing sources familiar with the situation.

Harvey is eligible for salary arbitration this offseason for a final time, and is eligible for free agency after the 2018 season. He will likely earn close to $6 million next year if offered arbitration.

"At this moment, I favor the idea of him being back," Mets GM Sandy Alderson said about Harvey last Friday.

Lately, Mets manager Terry Collins has acted so mellow, so indifferent to the losing and injuries, that it seems to me that he's accepted he will not be back next season. And, interstingly, he also seems OK with it.

According to multiple reports, Collins has told people he's unsure if he'll return to managing after this season. There have not been any reports indicating Collins and the Mets have discussed a contract extension.

Basically, it's time. His job here is done.

"It's definitely big for me," deGrom said of reaching the 200-inning milestone. "We've got plans to hopefully go to the World Series next year, and that's something I wanted to get to, to know what it's like to pitch that many innings in a year."

The Mets will be going into the offseason with a lot of question marks, but one thing is clear: they need more starting pitching. Sandy Alderson has said in interviews that he will be looking for someone who can be counted on for a lot of innings, which probably means they would be steering clear of high-ceiling starters with injury issues, such as Michael Pineda and Lance Lynn.

The sticker prices on Yu Darvish and Jake Arrieta will probably deter the Mets, so who are some mid-level starters they should have their eye on?

Mets RHP Matt Harvey showed signs of progress despite allowing three runs in the first bullpen appearance of his career on Saturday. 

With Noah Syndergaard throwing just one inning, Harvey came out after him in their "shared" start. Harvey let up two homers in his four-inning outing, yet he did like what he felt on the mound. 

Michelle Ioannou, MetsBlog | Twitter |: Mets fans are frustrated that the Dark Knight has not risen yet, and Matt Harvey is clearly frustrated with himself as well. There may not be many positives to say about Harvey when he's on the mound, but the open way he addresses the media after the game has been a positive.
