David Wright Newsbeat
Friday, June 14, 2013
The ladies of CougarLife.com were eager to help Mr. Wright reach third base — until things went all wrong.
The web site’s lineup of “sexy older professional women” was romanced by a Mets official to help land star infielder David Wright a starting spot in the upcoming All-Star Game at Citi Field.
The hunky third baseman was recently voted the most desirable major leaguer by the site’s members — leading the marketing executive to propose an outpouring of cougar love for Wright. [...]
On Tuesday morning, the Mets marketing maven e-mailed back with word that there was some “pushback” in the organization against the plan.
“We don’t feel a partnership working together would be the image that our team and David — especially since he recently got engaged — would like to portray,” the Mets official wrote.
