Here are some Mets notes as the Amazin's open a three-game set against the Dodgers at Citi Field ...
- The Tigers will most certainly be interested in acquiring third baseman David Wright, should he be made available on the trade market, writes Lynn Henning of The Detroit News. Wright is signed through 2012 and has a club option for 2013. Henning speculates that Wright would probably cost the Tigers a top-end pitching prospect, and they'd also have to figure out a plan for incumbent Brandon Inge. Last night, Mark Polishuk of MLBTR identified Wright as a trade candidate and included the Tigers as a potential fit.
- Steve Cohen, a billionaire "hedge-fund titan," is the frontrunner to purchase a minority stake in the Mets, according to Josh Kosman and Lenn Robbins of the New York Post. The candidates have been narrowed down to four, The Post reports, and the asking price is thought to be roughly $200MM for a 49-percent share of the team.
- The Wilpons have more interested suitors than you might think, tweets Jon Heyman of SI.com, and the team is being valued nearer to $1 billion than previous reports of roughly $750MM.
