Murray Chass: Furcal, Sabathia, Lowe, Teixeira

Murray Chass has a nice Sunday post covering some of the biggest names in the game.  Let's take a look:

  • Chass summarizes the Rafael Furcal fiasco nicely, and explains the potential legal hazards that refusing to work with the Wasserman group could lead to.
  • Brian Cashman has said that his refusal to trade for Johan Santana last year was because the Yankees knew C.C. Sabathia was going to be a free agent this year. Chass looks at their numbers side-by-side and points explains how by not trading for Santana, the Yankees risked missing out on both aces.
  • The Mets are very interested in Derek Lowe, but not his pricetag. Boras wants similar money to Barry Zito - about $18MM per season - for the 35-year-old Lowe. The Mets also like Oliver Perez, but he's another Boras client with a big price tag. The Mets don't want to add another big contract.
  • Is there really a team with a $200MM+ offer on the table for Mark Teixeira? Chass isn't so sure. It seems that Boras always has a "mystery team" in on the negotiations, but his client never seems to sign there... Don't count the Red Sox out just yet.
