According to MetsBlog:
In an appearance tonight on SNY, SI.com’s Jon Heyman said the Mets offered Francisco Rodriguez a two-year deal, with a third-year option, at roughly $12 million per season.I know the closer market is slim, and the Mets want to get the best deal, but this is just silly. Rodriguez originally wanted five-years and $75 million, so what do the Mets do? Offer two-years, of course.
This might just be a play to get a cheaper deal in the long run, and Heyman doesn't expect K-Rod to take it (shocker!).
At least give the man three years. Is that so bad?
