Mets general manager Sandy Alderson, speaking Thursday at the team's spring training complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla., said it remains "unlikely" that he would sign another high-priced free agent along the lines of Stephen Drew. "I said that it was unlikely we would sign another major free agent," Alderson said, via the New York Daily News. "I think that's still the case." Drew remains without a home after turning down the Red Sox' one-year, $14.1 million qualifying offer in November and becoming a free agent. His agent, Scott Boras, reportedly has had discussions with the Mets throughout the offseason.
