All i care about:

Colon pitching to a 3 ERA till July 25. Trade him for the best available OF prospect that's nearly to the MLB.

Trade Chris Young to a Dilson Herrera + Vic Black return.

Colon isn't gonna be a Met past this year. He knows that. No one wanted to give him the 2nd year. The Mets must have told him they'd give him the 2nd year to guarantee that salary, but that he'd likely be traded before the start of next season.

2015 and 2016 should be the years we strive to break through.

Rotation of Harvey, Wheeler, Syndergaard, Niese, and Montero.
Bullpen of Parnell, Black, DeGrom, a few vets and homegrown players to round out the rest.

The OF prospect should slot in next year with our current group of young core. Dom Smith fits in 2016. Herrera fits in 2016. D'arnaud moving forward. Lagares could be a very useful CF if his hitting develops slightly more. I'm not sold on Puello but I think Nimmo will be great when he finally bulks up and stays healthy. He's slotted at 2016 too.

Sign Hanley next year. We should be set.
