Mets After Ibanez?

Eli GreenspanSenior Analyst INovember 2, 2008
According to the Boston Globe, the Mets will pursue outfielder Raul Ibanez, in hopes of adding a consistent bat to their lineup. Ibanez, who hit .293 with 23 HR in 162 games this season, is also being pursued by the Phillies, Braves, Cubs, and Blue Jays. He is likely to receive a three year deal, which is very reasonable and affordable for the teams listed above. Although Ibanez is 36, he is a proven veteran with playoff experience.

The Mariners are not expected to retain him, so he should be signed soon after the exclusive negotiating rights window ends.
