According to MLBTR, David Wright is calling all of today’s reports inaccurate:
Mets third baseman David Wright offered commentary on the slew of reports from earlier today regarding his rumored contract negotiations, telling MLBTR, ”I have said from Day 1 that I want to play my entire career with the New York Mets. I remain hopeful that goal can be achieved. However, I am disappointed by the reports that I have read today which are inaccurate,” said Wright.
Nothing is imminent, agent Seth Levinson explained to MLBTR: “Discussions with the Mets are ongoing. We don’t anticipate a deal any time soon. However, things can always change. I will not characterize the negotiations or comment on the accuracy or inaccuracy of what is being reported,” Levinson said.
I’m shocked that both Rosenthal, who’s one of the best, and Martino were not onto something. Are the Mets purposely leaking this stuff as a means to an end? It wouldn’t be the first time.
