Of particular interest is that he says J.D. Drew is expected to sign a 2 year, $30 million deal with the BoSox. My initial thought is that, if I'm Jon Daniels, I'd be willing to match that, and kick in a little bit of a premium, to get Drew here, I think.
And Ringolsby also says that GMJ and Juan Pierre have each been offered a 3 year, $30 million deal from the Giants, with the contract going to whichever one accepts it first.
The Giants are another team who we don't want to sign GMJ or Carlos Lee, since the Rangers would get a second rounder rather than a first rounder.
