According to The New York Times, Japanese League shortstop Kazuo Matsui is "in the midst of negotiations" with four teams, all of whom have made offers. The Mets are believed to have offered a three-year deal worth close to $21 million.
"I think the decision will be made sooner than I thought," Matsui told the Japanese media on Thursday.
Matsui's stateside agent, Arn Tellem, told The Times on Thursday that Matsui "was interested in the Mets and in becoming the second player named Matsui to play in New York."
So basically it looks like a lock for matsui playing for the mets and reyes moving to 2nd base next year.
