The Dontrelle Willis Trade Offer Never Happened?

I have no idea what to think about this but Loria is denying all accounts of the Willis for Wright offer.

Owner Jeffrey Loria denied a Newsday report that said the Marlins approached the New York Mets in the past several weeks about trading Willis for David Wright.

"It never happened. You can print that," Loria said. "It's the invention of some irresponsible writer."

Normally, I wouldn't be inclined to believe an owner with the past history that Loria established in Montreal - especially considering the choice of language he used in the denial.  But since taking over the Marlins he has been fairly upfront about his intentions with the club.  So who knows.  

You can decide for yourselves.
