Egg on the face makes for an interesting appetizer

Well the Winter Meetings will take place next week and it looks like the Mets may already be on the appetizer course - egg, on their face, that is..  the David Wright contract speculations from earlier today has made a royal mess of things.

I would much rather them use eggs for a recipe for a winning team that is respected on and off the field than have it all over their faces for one embarrassing mishap after another, nothing worse than wasted food!!

Sandy Alderson needs to do some shopping next week but having this kind of situation with a star player can only discourage potential free agents from wanting to join the Mets, no matter what they get paid, you cant put a price on your dignity.

While I understand that making sure Wright is locked up before the Winter Meetings may set a precedent that the Mets are serious about Wright being a part of the future, not just the past, playing games with him and his continued desire for privacy and respect will only leave a sour taste in his mouth about remaining in New York.

The above picture may be of David Wright warming up before a game in Washington DC but today he has steam coming out of his ears and is gritting his teeth out of frustration that rumors of him being given offers and refusing them leaked out and he is being made out to be the greedy villain.

Time to work up an appetite for having the winning recipe in 2013.
