Are the Mets still looking to possibly deal him?

With the Mets coming out of the Wilpon/Madoff haze, I could see them going for Hanrahan.

If you look at some of the recent deals for top relievers, they usually came with one key potential everyday guy, and a few more pieces. Oakland got Josh Reddick and others for Andrew Bailey. Baltimore got Chris Davis and Tommy Hunter for Koji Uehara. I don’t think Hanrahan brings back a massive return, since he’s only under control for one year, but I think he can still bring that main piece.

I agree with your assessment of Hanrahan and Karstens. What do you feel is the trade value of Hanrahan?

They would probably want to negotiate with players before sending them away, just to see what the price would be. They’d also want to see what interest there was from other teams. You can have an idea of what you want to do, but it would be impossible at this point to have a concrete plan, since the deadline for those moves is so far away.
