Niese acknowledges contract talk

Jon Niese acknowledged advanced talks with the Mets about a long-term contract, but said he would refrain from an extended conversation about the topic until the deal's completion.

"What's the deal for? How much? That's all being worked out right now," Niese told ESPNNewYork.com. "There's definitely talks. Right now, until it's done, I'm not going to go into it."
