The Mets almost partnered with Cougarlife.com

RUN DAVID - Jim McIsaac

Think of the Howard Stern commercials we missed out on.

Via ESPN, it appears we were all denied the best marketing push for the All-Star Game, ever.

(David) Wright recently had been named "MLB's Hottest Cub" via a vote of more than 11,000 respondents on the dating website Cougarlife.com -- topping the likes of Cole Hamels and Matt Kemp. So a Mets employee approached the dating site, inquiring if it might want to help Wright overtake San Francisco Giants third baseman Pablo Sandoval in NL All-Star voting at third base.

The prospective arrangement, first reported by Deadspin, eventually was nixed by the employee's superior.

The funniest part? That not even the Cubs are "MLB's Hottest Cub."
