LAS VEGAS -- Mets general manager Omar Minaya is meeting with All-Star free-agent closer Francisco Rodriguez, and he is expected to make him an offer.

The exact proposal isn't known, but the Mets have been internally discussing a three-year contract, and might include a fourth-year vesting option.

Minaya said they might meet with several closers at the winter meetings, including Brian Fuentes and maybe Trevor Hoffman. However, as one person familiar with the Mets' thinking said, "If Rodriguez takes the first offer, then that's it, he's the guy.''
