Kevin Kernan of the Post says that David Wright has spoken and exchanged texts with Michael Bourn, trying to get him to join the Mets.  He offers a ton of quotes talking about how great a fit Bourn would be in Queens.

Going back to this morning’s post about Alderson’s ongoing conversations with Boras, one gets the sense that the Mets are truly putting on a full court press for Bourn. Or at least trying to convince their fans that they are.

      You have just insulted Scrooge McLoria and the Chihuahua – and they ain’t giving up the belt short of a knock-down, dragout title hearing like the one for O.J.’s Heisman trophy.

    Wright looks like he’s doing that stupid Duckface thing in that pic that all the stupid young girls do on Facebook these days.

    I don’t get the Mets this off-season. Sandy is über-concerned about his bullpen, as if it’s going to matter. Then this thing with Bourne. It seems they really feel they’re somewhat close to competing. Which is just, well, bizarre.
