Was told Mets haven't had any substantive talks with M's regarding Nick Franklin since winter meetings. Not on the front burner right now.For all the talk recently about the possibility of the Mets acquiring Seattle second baseman, Nick Franklin, this report my Nick Puma of the New York Post is a bit curious. Puma cites a source, who told him that the team hasn't had any meaningful discussions with Seattle about Franklin since December. Of course, there is no indication that Seattle is imminently prepared to deal Franklin. It was anticipated that the Mariners would likely wait until late in Spring Training to move Franklin for fear of an injury. Those days are approaching, so its completely possible that things will heat up fast in this area.
