The free-agent closer toured the suburbs, where most of the Mets' players live. He was to have dinner in the evening in New York City with Wilpon, the team's chief operating officer, and general manager Omar Minaya.

Philadelphia wants to re-sign Wagner, a 34-year-old left-hander who throws 100 mph. He was 4-3 with a 1.51 ERA last season.
