Drew Soap Opera Continues; Mets Still Unlikely

Stop us if you're tired of hearing about Stephen Drew's Excellent Adventure. With just 38 days until real games start, Drew (and his Uber-Agent Scott Boras) are still adrift in the cold snow of barren free agency. Passing on the $14.1 million qualifying offer from Boston, Drew has been casting about for months, looking for a taker on a multi-year deal. The latest is that the Mets—even if they free up payroll by trading Ike Davisare "unlikely" to sign Drew. Why? Says a Metropolitan source: "At the numbers he's looking for, we don't think he's worth it compared with what we have." Hey, there's always Independent ball.
