There's no elite talent in the pen. The only elite talent in the rotation is Dickey who you want to get rid of. This needs to be a long systematic rebuild. Sell Dickey doesn't do nearly enough. I think they should have actually looked more into trading Wright because I'm not optimistic he'll be a part of the eventual solution (if one ever even happens). He's shown the ability to succeed only as a role player, he hasn't been able to lead. Dickey on the other hand just won 20 games and the Cy Young on a bad team.
Matt Harvey looked like everything and more he was hyped up to be this year on his call up. I fully expect him to be an anchor of this lineup. You're not giving Wright enough credit. Good teams win with players like him. He was the leader last year and is the leader for the future. They're going in the right direction and I know Dickey isn't the popular move but it's the right move. The Mets aren't as bad as they look and Alderson has them looking good for the future in my eyes.
edit: I know the bullpen and outfield isn't the greatest but the team is young and improving. Good teams win with young core that improves each year. The Giants are a perfect example of that. I know that's an extreme but it's a possibility.
