#mets offered $48M for 4 yrs, so they were close. Went to mlb today and found draft-pick issue would have to go to grievance

#mets wouldn't do deal w/o retaining draft pick. Tough for bourn to wait on mets grievance, as it could take days/weeks

Reason #mets didn't request draft-pick issue to be resolved sooner is belief price would rise omce public pressure mounted
