Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reports on the top 10 destinations for Alex Rodriguez. The Mets rank number 6 on the list and Passan doesn’t seem to be too confident that the Mets will sign the future home run king.
But Adam Rubin reports in today’s New York Daily News that the front office has told David Wright to stay mum on the subject of ARod. This may signal that the Mets will attempt to make a serious play for ARod. Or they may just be trying to avoid their stud third baseman from putting his foot in his mouth on the subject. Either way Wright is expected to meet with team officials in the next few days to discuss the issue. The discussion will likely include talk about a possible position change should the Mets get ARod.
