Boras texted Jeff Wilpon

By Andrew Marchand

In trying to clarify comments he felt were misconstrued in an article in the New York Times, agent Scott Boras texted Mets COO Jeff Wilpon, Boras said Tuesday.

Boras, as he had earlier in the day to Adam Rubin, insisted he was not specifically talking about the Mets when he made comments on a panel Monday.

"When you're seeing franchises in major markets not pursuing to the levels that the revenues and the fan base and the market provide, then I think you have an ethical violation of the game," Boras said, as quoted by the Times.

Boras did not deny the accuracy of the quote, but said he never mentioned the Mets and was not talking about them specifically. That is the message he relayed to Wilpon.
