According to Jon Heyman the Mariners are looking for two blue-chip prospects and another prospect/ML ready player. They are also rumored to be looking for a ML ready power bat like Ike Davis, who is not going to be traded according to Jon Morosi.
It is to early to tell, but with Seattle's current demand its seems much more likely the Mets end up with Ted Lilly then Cliff Lee. They are not trading Jon Niese or Ike Davis and shouldn't trade talents like Wilmer Flore or Jenrry Mejia for a rental.
The Mets were among several other teams who watched Roy Oswalt pitch a gem today according to Brian McTaggart of MLB.com. Oswalt would cost less in prospect but more in money, but there are rumblings they would take a bad contract back( think Oliver Perez) to increase the value of the prospects they are receiving.
