Mets General Manager Shifts Focus To David Wright After Striking Out On Cyber Monday

Reports began surfacing Tuesday that the New York Mets have stepped up negotiations with their All-Star third baseman David Wright, offering a multi-year deal worth over 100 million dollars. But why the sudden urgency? We did a little digging and uncovered the real reason the Mets are suddenly so interested in re-signing their star player.

According to a source within the Mets organization, GM Sandy Alderson was on his computer all day Monday, at the behest of team ownership, feverishly trying to secure a deal on players for the team through the shopping website
"They really thought maybe you could get an online deal and put together a winning team on the cheap", says the source. "Mr. Alderson knows it doesn't work that way, but being the good soldier he is, he gave it a shot."

While the Mets were unable to secure any talent via the web, our source says the day may not have been a total loss.

"They did learn a few things about delayed payment plans that they are eager to try out."
