The Mets do not have a lot to trade to try to get better. So here is a thought for taking a struggling player from an area of potential depth to obtain a struggling player who, if he can be fixed, would help in an area of weakness not just this year, but in the near future: How about Jay Bruce to Colorado for Bryan Shaw? Both players were signed to three-year contracts in the offseason — Bruce for $39 million, Shaw for $27 million. Money can always be evened up if necessary. Why would the Rockies do it? Colorado went big on relievers in the offseason, investing $106 million on Shaw, Jake McGee and closer Wade Davis after giving Mike Dunn a three-year, $19 million pact the previous offseason.
