The Mets are interested in both of them, but the Pirates want a major league ready player (aka Diaz) for Gonzalez. There is no way the Mets do this. They are focusing on Grabow (also a lefty). The thing is the Pirates might want to wait a little before trading a left handed reliever because they can get much more, later in the season when teams are making the playoff push.
I'd say that Looper's job is real safe right now. Unless they trade for a proven closer (Urbina or possibly Baez), Looper is the closer and no one else is taking it away from him.
