An article by posted on December 30, 2008

According to Jack Curry of the New York Times, the Mets have offered Derek Lowe a three-year deal worth about $36 million.

“The Mets have offered the free-agent pitcher Derek Lowe a three-year contract for about $36 million, according to people who have been briefed on the discussions.”

Scott Boras did not comment specifically on the offer, but rather said, “Obviously, we’ve taken offers from a number of teams.” Boras said he was still in the process of establishing Lowe’s market.

Lowe is believed to be seeking a five-year, $90 million deal.”

Hopefully, Omar Minaya goes out and gets an additional starting pitcher to further solidify the rotation.
