07:31 AM ET 02.07 | Of course, he's after the best terms of a deal for Stephen Drew. Scott Boras wants an opt-out clause for [Drew] after Year 1 of a multiyear deal, a source told ESPNNewYork.com. That's not going to fly with the Mets, who otherwise still remain in play for the free-agent shortstop. ... [There still] appears a question of how much Drew is worth over incumbent Ruben Tejada. In 2013, Drew had a 3.1 WAR and Tejada had a -0.9 WAR, suggesting Drew would be worth four more wins than Tejada. But that arguably is an extreme example. ... So the question becomes: Do the Mets want to allot $11 million to $12 million a season for Drew when there is no guarantee the production in most years will result in more than one or two extra wins, at least as calculated by WAR?

I don't think any GM in his right mind will give up a draft pick for one year of Stephen Drew. Even if it is only the Mets' third round pick

So why offer him any more than a 1 year deal? He's a Boras client,so he will use the opt out clause barring any season-long injury.

I'm sure the Red Sox would give him that option. They really only want him for 1 more year. 2 at the most.

Even some baseball fans don't realize that this guys was one HELL of a hitter! Career was short because of a bad back.He also dated Liz Taylor and Janet Leigh, which is pretty impressive when you consider the guy played for the Pirates and had a schnozz like Ernie Lombardi's and Hank Greenberg's put together.

I don't think it was his schnozz that attracted the ladies.

What's the point of giving a player, any player, a one year Opt-Out clause, unless it's both ways?
