I dont think he used the Mets to get his price up. If there was any team he used, it was the Orioles. It was very obvious that he didnt want to play in Baltimore because he left their huge offer on the table for weeks, as opposed to deciding on Anaheim's similar offer in basically one day.

As for the Mets telling the press they wanted him, I assume its pretty hard to conceal the fact that they made him an offer.
