Steve Popper of the Bergen Record is reporting that the Mets will make two contract offers before leaving the Winter Meetings today.
Based on additional reporting from Adam Rubin of the Daily News, one of those offers will most likely be to free-agent catcher Bengie Molina. Earlier reports yesterday that the Mets had already made an offer turned out to be inaccurate.
Also, there is some buzz around Twitter that the second offer could be for starting pitcher John Lackey. However, this has not been confirmed by any reliable source so please take it with a grain of salt.
The Mets did meet with the agents for John Lackey last night, so it wouldn’t be far fetched to think that an offer could be forthcoming.
Of course it’s a 2-way street as well. Making an offer is only half the battle and the easy part. It’s accepting the offer that usually proves to be more elusive.
Stay tuned for more updates on this…
