The New York Mets have offered David Wright a seven-year deal that is worth a little more than 100 million dollars. Earlier in the month Wright was offered less money, and one less year, but the Mets have finally upped their offer, and I would be surprised if Wright didn’t take it. According to multiple sources the deal won’t go into effect until 2014, because it’s a contract extension. So David Wright’s seven year deal will start in 2014, where the Mets will then have him under control through 2021. Yesterday, Evan Longoria was given a six-year extension yesterday worth about 100 million dollars, however thats adding on a four year deal that’s already in place. So Longoria is under contract for the next ten years (through 2022). Now that the Mets have offered Wright that seventh year, the deals are looking more and more similar. I know Wright wants a seven-year 145 million dollar deal, but I just don’t think that’s going to happen with the Mets. Sure, if he wants to decline this offer and wait until next offseason where he can file for free agency, he could get the offer then, but in a different uniform. However, David Wright knows he’s a Met. The fans love him, he loves the Mets, and the firs thing you think about when you talk about the Mets is David Wright. I do predict Wright will accept this offer, and hopefully the Mets can start talking to Dickey soon as well.
