Super Agent Scott Boras wants an opt-out clause for Stephen Drew after Year 1 of a multiyear deal, according to Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com.
The Mets are considering a two or even three-year deal for Drew, although there still appears a question of how much Drew is worth over incumbent Ruben Tejada.
As for the opt-out, that's a deal-breaker for the Mets. That's because Drew could again enter free agency after a good season in 2014. And with a poor season he would be locked in to one or two more seasons guaranteed placing all of the risk on the team side.
