Are the Mets interested?:?So far, the Mets are not among the five teams to show early?interest in free-agent OF Melky Cabrera, a person with knowledge of his situation said in early November (Vorkunov, Nov. 7). Cabrera, who was extended a qualifying offer by Toronto, will cost his new team a first-round pick in next year's draft if he turns it down and, according to a team source, the Mets?have very little interest in giving up their top?pick (15th overall) (Martino, Nov. 4).
