New York Mets third baseman David Wright spoke out strongly against steroid use and said he is sticking with his agents despite ties between some of their other clients and recent steroid allegations, reports the New York Daily News' Andy Martino.

A former associate of Wright's agents, Sam and Seth Levinson, was implicated last year when Melky Cabrera created a website to try to cover up his steroid use. Cabrera, a client of the Levinsons, was suspended 50 games.

Recently, clients, including Washington pitcher Gio Gonzalez and Texas outfielder Nelson Cruz, were linked to Biogenesis, the Miami clinic tied to recent steroid allegations against Alex Rodriguez, among others.

"If you cheat, I hope you get caught," Wright said. "I don't care if you're with the same agency I'm with or not. If you're a cheater, I hope you get caught, and I hope you get punished."

"For me, it's obviously sucks that these things are coming out and the players are who they are, but as I've stated before, those guys (the Levinsons) have been great to me."

Martino reports that Wright asked the Levinsons to explain the Cabrera situation and ultimately decided to stick with them. They negotiated Wright's new eight-year, $138-million contract this offseason.
