Julio Lugo

The Post reports that the Mets "are further along in trying to secure Julio Lugo to be their every second baseman."  

I don't underdstand why either Lugo or the Mets would want to pursue such a deal.

From the Mets' perspective:  Lugo is 31, struggled with the Dodgers in 49 games last year, wants a four year deal,  and will probably cost a decent amount of money.

I was hoping that the Mets would try to find a less expensive right handed bat to platoon with Valentin.  Both Valentin and Lugo performed better against righties last year Lugo: 349/429/778, Valentin 342/538/879. (Lugo's splits from last year, however, may be an anomaly.  For his career his numbers are almost identical against righties and lefties).

From Lugo's perspective:  I know that he is a Met fan from NY, but why would he choose to play second on only a semiregular basis for the Mets when he can play short every day for Boston.

What am I missing?
