He recently had an email conversation with a writer for the Star Ledger. I guess out of spite the columnist decided to post his comments. I think it's hilarious that a conversation like this is taking place between an agent and a writer.
This is the article quote that started it:
Writer wrote:The money is almost a wash -- the Mets are paying Delgado $12 million in salary this year plus a $4 million buyout on his 2009 option for a total of $16 million, and the Mariners are paying Sexson $14 million. Delgado has a no-trade clause, and could veto any deal, but maybe he's sick of the New York circus.
These are emails being fired back and forth:
Agent wrote:You're wrong on both the money and the terms.
Writer wrote:How so?
Agent wrote:Ask your unreliable sources to look it up again.
Writer wrote:Real classy and helpful. Thanks. If you can't tell me what I got wrong, I will assume I got it right and you're just living down to your reputation. As I understand it, he makes $16 mil this year and the Marlins pay $4 mil of it.
Agent wrote:But that isn't what you wrote, you said he's making 12 & has a no trade which is wrong. But then why let a little thing like a fact get in the way of your jornalism. As for my "reputation" you know what they say about people that can't take a joke.
Writer wrote:Sorry I missed your 'joke.' This is what I wrote: 'the Mets are paying Delgado $12 million in salary this year plus a $4 million buyout on his 2009 option'. I won't hold my breath waiting for your apology.
Agent wrote:Apologize this retard, he's making 16 this year WITH an option for next year @ 16 or a buyout @ 4. Nice research by you but then I guess that whole concept of fact finding escapes you huh? They didn't teach that on the short bus did they?
Writer wrote:That a joke too? You're a funny guy.
Agent wrote:So's your Mom.
