Mets an option for Bourn? 

January, 23, 2013
Scott Boras finally found a new home for Rafael Soriano at a favorable price, getting the reliever a two-year, $28 million deal with the Washington Nationals last week.

Will he be able to find a similar seal for outfielder Michael Bourn? The smart money says never to bet against Boras, even if the market appears to be limited, especially for a long-term deal. With a month to go until spring training, the uber agent could be looking at the National League East, just as he did with Soriano.

Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe reported Sunday the Mets are not out of the picture for Bourn if the price and length of commitment come down.
