David Wright is a Met for life after agreeing to an eight year, $138 million dollar contract.
He’ll be collecting on that deal through his age 37 season. Thoughts?
Ed Leyro – Mike Piazza and Carlos Beltran were the last two everyday players to sign seven-year deals that took them into their mid-thirties. Piazza’s last three years were underwhelming, while Beltran only did well in years two through four and the first half of year seven. Perhaps by 2020,when Wright will be playing in the final year of his contract, $122 million for seven years won’t be considered very much. But I’m still hoping Wright doesn’t follow the roads taken by Piazza and Beltran, meaning that he’ll be able to be productive for the majority of his contract.
