The Mets are no longer lowballing David Wright

This morning we heard that the Mets had offered David Wright a six-year, $100 million deal to David Wright, which most agree will not get the job done.  Andy Martino reports that they’re quickly correcting:

Probably a good lesson in here: players and teams will leak negotiating terms in an effort to further their interests. Someone with Wright likely leaked the $100 million offer in order to shame the Mets. Then, as soon as that hit this morning, the Mets leaked their most recent offer in order to shame Wright or look less shamed themselves or whatever.
