Matthew Cerrone: According to multiple reports, acquiring A's RH reliever Tyler Clippard?will not keep the Mets from also trying to trade for a hitter.

I've been hearing all day that, while the price for Justin Upton is sky high, it will likely drop as the week goes on. The kicker is that I think he could get moved through waivers in August, so it will not shock me to see San Diego keep him through Friday, despite everyone in baseball saying they're desperate to unload. I'd love to see the Mets get him or bring home Brewers OF Carlos Gomez, who can be had for a similar price. Of course, I'm still holding out hope for Rockies SS Troy Tulowitzki, but if Colorado is smart they will do nothing and wait to create a larger?market this winter.

The injury to Steven Matz does not change Sandy Alderson's approach to the trade deadline, he told reporters at Citi Field on Friday.

"Pitching was always our strength," Alderson said. "There's been speculation that we were looking to trade pitching and therefore this loss makes that less likely, but I don't think it was ever likely we were going to trade out of the six-man group."
