Mets Will Meet Scott Boras This Week To Discuss Choo and Drew

MLB: Boston Red Sox at Detroit Tigers

David Lennon of Newsday reports that the Mets will meet with Scott Boras this week at the GM Meetings in Orlando to discuss the possibility of signing OF Shin-Soo Choo and SS Stephen Drew.

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…

Seriously though, Lennon says the Mets have made SS a huge priority after letting Jose Reyes walk and then watching Ruben Tejada fall out of favor.

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.
