Magglio Ordonez Watch Continues

Last Friday, Scott Boras sent the Tigers a counteroffer for Magglio Ordonez. The rumor is that the Tigers offered a five year contract, and that the counteroffer was for seven years.

Since then, the Sosa trade put the Cubs in play for Ordonez, but they’ve since signed Jeremy Burnitz. So as it stands, the Mets are the only other team that’s been rumored to be interested, and that’s only if they can deal disgruntled outfielder Mike Cameron.

I give Dave Dombrowski a ton of credit for not jumping the gun, and I’m really interested to see how this all plays out. I think Ordonez will help the team dramatically, but as always, you don’t want to overpay. I could live with a five year contract if it includes an outclause if Ordonez’s knee acts up, but a seven year deal is a little too much for me to swallow.
