"Do you really believe that Sandy is faking interest in players?"
Of course just like they faked interest in signing Wright to an extension.
"OK, but we hear about how we just can never know if the guy was interested in the Mets, or that they asked too much, or other reasons why a deal wasn;t done, a lot more than we hear about deals being done, for a while now."
But we CAN never know. And neither can any fan for any other team.
"I am pretty sure they faked interest in signing Dickey."
And if they had signed him you would have said they faked interest in trading him for prospects. They had interest in both depending on the situation.
"They need Wright as token good mlb player for their All Star game."
Um Wright was under team control this year he would have played in the All Star game without the 7 year $120M extension.
i didn't really care for sandy. his opening presser i knew he was just a puppet for the wilpons. but all things considered, he got us wheeler, d'arnaud, snydergaard, he is also protecting our draft pick.
he's also made some bonehead moves and some non moves but this team has some nice pieces moving forward.
