Here we go again…
Last month’s rumor that Daisuke Matsuzaka was being courted by the Mets, as reported by Hochi Shimbun from a Japanese newspaper, is making the rounds again today.
This rumor was already shot down by the Mets two weeks ago.
A team source immediately disputed the report by Shimbun to ESPN. Moments after the rumor appeared on various sites, a Mets source told ESPN that he does not believe the organization has spoken with Matsuzaka at all.
Why this is being resurrected today, and why it’s not being reported that the team has already denied this from the start?
Slow news day I guess…
Enjoy the game….

Never mind what you read below, the Mets denied it.
