It is unlikely Jon Rauch and Ramon Ramirez are re-signed. Andres Torres and Mike Pelfrey are expected to be non-tendered. The Mets would welcome back free-agent-to-be Scott Hairston, but believe he may get a two-year deal elsewhere and depart.

R.A. Dickey won the pitcher/batter battle, but Adam Greenberg...
