Brian Fuentes' agent Rick Thurman told the Denver Post that the only team not showing interest in the closer is the Rockies.
The Mets are among many teams who are actively pursuing Fuentes for their closer duties. The Mets seem to be against spending the big bucks for Francisco Rodriguez, and Fuentes looks like he'll cost a few million cheaper, per year.
According to the Denver Post:
Major League team executives predict that Fuentes won't receive less than $36 million over three years. However, given the number of interested parties, the term of the contract could swell to four years.I'm fine with the Mets spending that much, for that many years, on a guy like Fuentes. He's consistent, not too old (33) and has been a closer before. Yes, he lost his job during the latter part of 2008, but he still performed well enough to convert 30 of 34 saves.
