I agree, but I'd still like to have Wright
Report makes no sense.
Why would they state in public that they were going to begin working on a deal for Wright immediately after the season ended if they know they can't do it?
I wonder if Kansas City would be willing to give up Moustakas in a trade for Wright, considering that they're on the brink of contention and Wright could certainly help them out a ton.
Cuban for Mets owner in '15
Now lets trade Wright and Dickey, then spend money in '15/'16.
Mark Cuban being the owner would be the greatest thing ever. And by ever, I mean EVER.
Sadly, I don't see it happening.
One issue with something he said though:
Michael Salfino @MichaelSalfino
And Mets lack of cash, I'm told, is the reason they deferred Bay. More than a baseball decision, they just pass that along to next owner.
Um, then wouldn't paying Wright huge money when he's not worth it anymore (at ages 36-38) be passed along to next owner as well?
If they were so broke they could have declined the options on both Dickey and Wright.
The situation isn't that dire.
