Three players Mets can ditch to prepare for a brighter future

What might be the most flawed Mets team of at least the last quarter-century — and that’s saying something when you consider the Art Howe era and the early years of Terry Collins’ regime — departed for the All-Star break Sunday night and shouldn’t bother returning.
