FLORIDA MARLINS CHANGE NAME TO MIAMI CRACKHEADS They must be on some kind of narcotic in South Beach as then Marlins have approached the Mets about trading David Wright to the Funky Fish for Dontrelle Willis. Not only did Omar Minaya slam down the phone on the Fish he said the Mets want to sit down whit Wright and his reps to hammer out a long term deal a la the Cleveland Inddian Way. Not only does Wright want to work one out as well but he also LOVES IT HERE and wants to be here for a long time: {Instead, the Mets have told Wright's people they intend to talk with him at year's end about a long extension, assuming the year goes as expected. Taking a cue from the Indians, who locked up young stars Grady Sizemore and Victor Martinez with lengthy deals, the Mets are interested in a contract for Wright for six or five years and a team option because they want to delay his free agency by two years. If they get that done, Wright, 23, gets security, and the Mets could save millions and ensure he's theirs through his 20s. "If the Mets are interested, I'm all ears," Wright said. "I love it here. I know I've only played a year and a half. But I love it. I love everything about this organization."} Things must be getting very desperate in South Beach to think that this would fly. It's only a matter of time until we see Larry Beinfest led out of Dolphin Stadium in a wife beater like on COPS. http://www.newsday.com/sports/printedition/ny-sbmside234714144apr23,0,946343.story?coll=ny-sports-print` < |
