Mets to meet with Scott Boras about Stephen Drew, Shin-Soo Choo

Stephen DrewThe Mets will meet with Scott Boras this week at the industry meetings in Orlando to discuss the possibility of signing OF Shin-Soo Choo and SS Stephen Drew (Lennon, Nov. 10).

Choo is looking to exceed the seven-year, $126 million contract that OF Jayson Werth signed with the Nationals before the 2011 season (Crasnick, Nov. 9). Last week, the Mets reached out to Scott Boras to express initial interest in Choo (Puma, Nov. 7).

The Red Sox aren’t likely to offer Drew more than a two-year contract (Cafardo, Nov. 10). Drew could end up signing a three- or four-year deal worth around $12 million a season (Sherman, Oct. 28).
