Palladino: Mets Shouldn’t Settle For Ruben Tejada At Shortstop

Typical Mets. Stephen Drew’s price tag is too high? Don’t pay. The timing of the signing would force them to give up a draft pick? Don’t sign until he comes for free.

Report: Mets Reach Out To Free-Agent Shortstop Rafael Furcal

As far as free agents go, Stephen Drew and Jhonny Peralta are the cream of the shortstop crop, but they will be in heavy demand and will likely command top dollar. A cheaper option is 36-year-old Rafael Furcal.

Kallet: Terry Collins Deserves Chance With Roster That Can Realistically Contend

Terry Collins’ contract will expire at the end of the season. I’m not suggesting that Fred Wilpon should give him a four-year extension. But I’d like to see him finally have a chance with a team that’s built to contend.
