Fuentes' Price A Bit High For Mets?

According to Adam Rubin of the New York Daily News, Brian Fuentes' agent told the Mets he's looking for three years and $10-11MM per.  The article headline says this demand "rocks" Omar Minaya, but the body of the article just says Minaya finds it "a bit high."  It's hard to imagine the Mets being surprised by Fuentes' asking price, as most fans could've guessed it.  Earlier reports actually had Fuentes asking for more.

Rubin says the Mets will negotiate on parallel tracks for Fuentes and Francisco Rodriguez, content to sign either closer.

Other minor news: Minaya confirmed interest in Raul Ibanez, and will talk with Scott Boras at the winter meetings to determine Oliver Perez's asking price.
