The Mets are Red Sox are among the four teams currently showing interest in free-agent SS Stephen Drew (Bowden, Feb. 18).
However, based on information from a source, Drew may still be seeking as much as $14 million a year, which the Mets have no interest in paying (Puma, Feb. 18).

Good, nor should they… that’s too much for Drew. He’s not great. He’s good. He’s useful, especially if he’ll play other positions, which he seems willing to do. Frankly, I don’t mind the idea of him giving two years, because I think he could play a role on next year’s team as an all-purpose infielder. But, $14 million a year is crazy talk, especially if he still thinks he’s getting a three-year deal or wants an opt-out in his contract.
