    The Mets' 2014 Opening Day SS Will Be...

    It will not be Stephen Drew, but...

    PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- Scott Boras, who represents free-agent Stephen Drew, indicated he has engaged in discussions with the Mets.

    "I have certainly had dialogue with them," Boras told Anthony Rieber in Newsday on Friday. "The message has always been that they have interest in Stephen but they wanted to see how things went in spring training."

    Asked about the draft-pick forfeiture attached to Drew dissuading teams from bidding, Boras instead told Rieber: "The bigger issue is the credibility of the teams that are deficient. They have known weaknesses. We're talking about a shortstop that's in the top eight in baseball, is fourth in OPS, drove in [67] runs last year and is one of the better defenders at his position. When these players are available and clubs that have weaknesses are not pursuing them, a question of the integrity of what the goals of the organization are come to mind. I think the fans have to appraise that because if winning is the goal, certainly these players are major factors in whether or not a club can win or not."

    Asked if he was talking about the Mets, Boras added to Newsday: "I'm not speaking about anyone specifically. I'm just speaking generally about the reason that these players are coveted, the reason that these players are so valuable, the reason they sign late, is teams get to look in spring training and the obvious weaknesses of clubs is revealed. The fans of the respective teams really get to look inside what can really help their team and the fact that this talent is available. And there are those teams that this talent is available without the detriment of losing a first-round pick. It's rare that you have that opportunity."

    Knowing the overall *shape* of an idea, argument, situation requires as many facts, models, opinions as you can take/make to see a whole.

    More nonsense from Boras. Propping up his mediocre client who has had 2 seasons over 2 WAR since 2007.

    Orioles, Mets, Rays all talking to Mariners about Nick Franklin

    PEORIA, Ariz. - The Orioles are a third team with interest in Mariners infielder Nick Franklin, joining the Rays and Mets, sources say.

    Franklin could be a second-base candidate for the Orioles as well as the Rays. The Mets need a shortstop, and have been scouting Franklin for that position. Franklin came up for Seattle last summer and hit 12 home runs, showing good pop.

    The likelihood of a trade somewhere seems strong at this point. Discussions are ongoing. Franklin was No. 4 on the list of likely spring trade candidates here a couple days ago.

    The Orioles are using prospect Jonathan Schoop as well as Ryan Flaherty and Alexi Casilla at second base. Schoop, a highly-regarded young player, is batting .500 this spring.

    Second base might be Franklin's best position, but Mets scouts are gauging whether he can play shortstop. The Mariners have determined that they will go with Brad Miller, who is having a great spring, at shortstop. Franklin's second-base opportunity went away in Seattle when the Mariners signed Robinson Cano, who is 12 for 19 so far this spring.

    Franklin is also having a productive spring, hitting .304.
