Over at the New York Daily News, Andy Martino reports that, even though extension talks haven’t taken place, the Mets are probably going to try to keep David Wright in a Mets uniform for years to come.
The key thing is whether the Mets think Wright will become injury prone all of a sudden. Which, last year notwithstanding, he never has been. The current thing — that injured pinky — was freakish and, as of today anyway, is no longer keeping him out of the lineup.
Wright is a generally durable and consistent guy. Seems like it would make an awful lot of sense to lock him up, especially considering that there’s really no one else anywhere near needing locked up on the horizon.
