UPDATE, 12-19-07 at 11:14am: Todd Zolecki says there’s nothing to the report that the Phils made a four-year offer to Lohse. So, Zolecki and Davidoff do not agree with Tim Brown.
UPDATE, 12-19-07 at 9:24am: Ken Davidoff wrote this morning that the Mets "do not seem particularly interested" in Lohse, Carlos Silva, or Livan Hernandez at the current prices.

There hasn’t been a ton of buzz around Lohse yet. It seems that other aspects of the pitching market may have to settle first. Lohse could be a Plan B for the Mariners. He could be an option for St. Louis as well. It’s been said that Scott Boras, Lohse’s agent, may try to get five years for him. As Jerry Crasnick says, Boras is "willing to wait for teams to get desperate." You can check out Boras’ spin on Lohse here.
