NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The Mets want David Wright to start for the National League at the upcoming All-Star Game at Citi Field … badly.
But as it currently stands, the 30-year-old trails Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval in the voting.
As first reported by Deadspin, a member of the Mets’ marketing department reached out to cougarlife.com, “the cougar dating site for younger hot men to meet sexy older professional women,” in an effort to get women to vote for the six-time All-Star.
Last month, the website named Wright the “hottest cub” in the major leagues.
Someone with the Mets emailed Cougar Life on Friday, writing “wondering if you would be able to blog/post a story asking your users (who apparently admire David and would love seeing him play in the All-Star Game) to go to the below link to vote David and #VoteWrightNow as he needs their help,” according to Deadspin.
