Meet the Mets
Jerry Crasnick reported earlier this morning that Scott Boras is trying to engage the Mets on free agents Stephen Drew and Kendrys Morales. Both would fill holes on the team, though both would cost money that the Mets may not have along with a draft pick. It sounds like the Mets have little to no interest in Morales. Drew could be a nice fit, however, if they can't work out a trade for a shortstop.
Around the Majors
The owner of the NBA's Golden State Warriors is interested in purchasing the Oakland A's and building a ballpark for them on the Oakland waterfront.
