Where do you stand on trading R.A. Dickey and David Wright?

It is a tiny bit surprising that we do not have any kind of idea how the Mets are going to handle their two biggest starts — R.A. Dickey and David Wright. Sure, the club picked up the option on both players but would it really be a surprise if either one or both of those players were elsewhere come Opening Day? There has been very little concrete news about which direction...

Cerrone: Mets and Wright $20 Million Apart

Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog says he’s heard that Sandy Alderson and David Wright are just $20 million dollars apart on a new contract extension. However, based on what I’m hearing, Wright’s camp is thinking seven years and at least $130 million guaranteed, while the Mets are thinking more like six years and around $110 million. Frankly, that’s close enough to make me confident...

Signing Wright Is Proof Positive That Alderson Is Doing The Will Of The Fans

Thoughts from Joe D. One of my predictions after the season ended was that the Mets would make signing David Wright a top priority and actually mean it unlike what they said about Jose Reyes. From day one, the way they have handled Wright has been completely different than Reyes. The mot obvious sign were not one, but two visits to Wright’s home in Virginia. But I’ve always maintained...

Mets’ 2013 Offseason: A Tale Of Two Sandys

Welcome back my friends… I’ve missed you. It has been a heckuva two weeks hasn’t it? Hurricane Sandy arrived and we here on the East Coast have taken a battering and been left powerless, and no, I’m not talking about the Mets’ outfield or the Yankees in the playoffs. My house, in particular, was without lights for a total of twelve days, twenty hours. The hurricane...
