Mets want Bradley, Bogaerts from Sox

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- ESPNBoston.com's Joe McDonald reports that Red Sox GM Ben Cherington met with Sandy Alderson on Monday, and that the Mets have asked for top Red Sox prospects Jackie Bradley Jr. and shortstop Xander Bogaerts in a trade for R.A. Dickey.

Boston is unlikely to part with either prospect, McDonald added. He said the Mets have met with eight teams.
