Scott Boras said at the Winter Meetings last year that the Dodgers and Mets were hanging out in the “fruits-and-nuts” section among free agents rather than going after big-ticket items like they have in the past.

Asked today where he sees the two franchises now, Boras stuck with the supermarket analogy. (Via David Lennon of New York Newsday)

Fortunately, Mets general manager Sandy Alderson can take a joke and is quite capable of dishing one out. When told about Boras’ comment, Alderson told Mike Puma of the New York Post that “freezer burn is something I’m familiar with.”
