As Ken Davidoff of the New York Post tweets, Wright said the following.
I reached out to David Wright to try to determine which reports were "inaccurate," as per his remarks to @mlbtraderumors.— Ken Davidoff (@KenDavidoff) November 28, 2012
Wright wrote: "I wish I could elaborate but it was important to me from the very beginning that these negotiations remain..." (cont)— Ken Davidoff (@KenDavidoff) November 28, 2012
"...confidential and private. I plan on sticking to that. Sorry I can't comment any further." #Mets— Ken Davidoff (@KenDavidoff) November 28, 2012
To sum the whole saga up, here is what has happened.
- Wright was reportedly low-balled with a 6-year $100 million dollar offer
- The Mets and Wright worked up to around an 8-year $140 million extension
- Wright said all of this was not true
- Wright said he won't talk about it anymore
