The Mets have already spoken to Boras vie phone last week to express their interest in Choo and Drew. However, no dollars or parameters for a deal were discussed according to a team official.
Choo is expected to draw interest from 8-10 teams and projections have him netting as much as $90 million dollars which is exactly where Boras places his value. My guess is that he’ll get slightly less than that and sign a five-year deal for $80 million.
The Mets have more interest in Jhonny Peralta than they do Drew, however they’ll do their due diligence and explore all options according to my baseball people. Ha.. Just kidding…
Sandy Alderson won’t be in Orlando until Tuesday, but it’s expected that he’ll be checking in with Boras and many other agents regarding a dozen or so players in the next few days.
