This World Series -- or, as Mets fans seem to regard it, the annoying partition blocking you from the offseason you’ve long been waiting for -- will end either tonight or tomorrow, but the New York baseball reader should not expect immediate hot stove action.

The Mets are looking to trade either Ike Davis or Lucas Duda this winter and have had preliminary chats with other teams, as Jeff Wilpon indicated on Wednesday -- but according to another team source, it is too soon to know which player is more appealing to clubs, and which will ultimately be moved.

“Don’t know yet,” the source said, when asked which first baseman seemed to have more trade value.

As we have previously reported, the Mets are leaning toward choosing Duda over Davis, but remain open-minded to moving whoever brings a stronger return.

Wilpon spoke on Tuesday at a Boys and Girls Club in Garfield, N.J., and indicated that it is simply too soon to know which players will be available in trades this winter (and the Mets seem at least as interested in spending their money on existing contracts as they do in signing top free agents); sources inside the team’s organizational meetings earlier this month backed that assertion. “We just talked about how the guys we have would fit in,” said one team insider. “Didn’t get into other players.”

Wilpon also identified four incumbents that the team is “solidified on” for next year: David Wright, Jon Niese, Dillon Gee and Zack Wheeler (meaning, apparently, that the “trade Wheeler” wing of the team will stand down, for now).

That formulation omits Daniel Murphy, and brings us to a topic we promised yesterday to raise: It’s a nice development for the Mets that Eric Young Jr. did not win a Gold Glove on Tuesday night for his work in left field. The team did not need him to become further identified with that position, because of Young’s versatility, and ability to play second base, his natural position.

According to sources, the Mets have discussed at least two scenarios that would make Young the everyday second baseman in 2014: Trading Murphy, or making Murphy the first baseman. The latter is less likely, because Sandy Alderson is said to prefer power at that corner position.
