No suitors for free-agent shortstop Stephen Drew besides the casual interest from the Mets and Boston Red Sox?

Not true, says agent Scott Boras.

“There are five or six teams who I have actively talked to concerning Stephen,” Boras told the Boston Globe. “Ben [Cherington, the Red Sox GM] and I have continued our dialogue and will continue to talk.

“I tell my clients all the time that free agency is a long process. It just doesn’t end at Christmas. It’s a January, February, and even a March process. Teams assess their needs, explore their trade options, and when things finally settle there’s still a free agent market for them to turn to. Ask the Red Sox what Stephen meant to their team.”
