Wright pops the question...well sort of

Ken Davidoff at On The Mets Beat, writes about David Wright, Jose Reyes and John Maine visiting Japan's prime minister about baseball and a hint of Matsuzaka:

It used to be the Mets couldn't get an audience with the mayor of their own city. But here in Tokyo on Thursday, a contingent of David Wright, Jose Reyes and John Maine visited with Japan's prime minister, Shinzo Abe, in his downtown office. Abe donned a pinstriped Mets jersey -- No. 1 -- and talked a little baseball with the trio.Wright even asked if he could help in the recruitment of Seibu Lions ace, Daisuke Matsuzaka.

"I asked him if he could make a couple phone calls for us and maybe persuade him," Wright said. "We could use another quality starting pitcher next year. He said he’d look into it for me."
