Mets Make Offer To Oliver Perez


"During tonight’s Hot Stove show on the MLB Network, SI.com’s Jon Heyman said the Mets offered free-agent LHP Oliver Perez a three-year deal, ‘worth close to $30 million.’" Eric's take: Interesting. I had read last week that Minaya favored Perez even though almost everyone else fancied Derek Lowe, but I didn't realize he liked him so much that he'd throw an offer out there. I think Perez will be about as quick to accept this deal as Lowe was to accept the 3/$36 million deal the Mets offered him (which was rebuffed and whose very existence has been denied by Scott Boras). Clearly, Minaya is not content to lose both Lowe and Perez, so he now (reportedly) has offers on the table for each. Who knows where Boras will take this.

Tex is a Yankee


This is what the NY Times is reporting, without details. So does this hurt our chances of getting Derek Lowe now that the Sox have some money to blow? Update: ESPN is reporting 8 years/$180 million. http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/news/story?id=3790141
