Are the Mets Showing Their Age?

I wonder if the Mets are showing their age right now. Hernandez (37?), Valentin (37), Green(34) and Alou (40) have all been to the DL and all of them are are well into their 30s. Delgado. who turns 35 in a week, has been struggling all year and Glavine (41) is also stuggling right now. Also, Pedro (35) has been on the DL all year. And I haven't even mentioned Julio Franco, who is turning 49 in August. Did you know that he was born in 1958? Age will be a major factor going into the dog days of summer. Hopefully, the team will be healthy in August and September.

Unfortunately, the answer is probably yes. Which is a big reason why I don't want the team to trade any of their young talent, unless it's for young talent in return.
