Mets Free Agents

The following Mets are eligible to become free agents. Who should they try to keep and who should they let go?

- RH Chad Bradford: Key bullpen piece the team will try to retain.

- C Mike DiFelice: Serviceable reserve catcher, but no urgency here to keep.

- LF Cliff Floyd: Underwent surgery on ankle, so don't expect anything until after four-month rehab period.

- LH Tom Glavine: Team said it will attempt to re-sign. Competition would be Atlanta.

- RH Roberto Hernandez: Faded in favor of Guillermo Mota. No urgency to retain.

- RH Orlando Hernandez: Mets would like to re-sign.

- OF Rickey Ledee: Bit player; no urgency.

- RH Jose Lima: Good-bye.

- RH Guillermo Mota: Would like to re-sign.

- LH Darren Oliver: Had solid year, but at 36 Mets could figure they got what they could and let him go.

- RH Steve Trachsel: Will likely not re-sign.

- OF Michael Tucker: Role player can be filled at any time.

- 2B Jose Valentin: Would like to keep, but asking price might be high both in years and dollars.
