Francisco Rodriguez’s agent, Paul Kinzer, appeared on WFAN this morning. Justin Terranova of the New York Post relays his comments.
Kinzer says there are "three to four" teams in the running for K-Rod besides the Mets. He doesn’t know the exact number? Obviously, Kinzer considers the Mets a good fit for his client (especially given that no other big-market team is looking for a closer). Rodriguez will require four years and perhaps $15MM annually. My guess: K-Rod tops Joe Nathan’s record $47MM for a reliever, but the deal is closer to $50MM than $60MM.
