Brian Costa of the Wall Street Journal says that the Mets are planning on offering David Wright a long term deal this summer.

There have been some rumblings of contract talks between Wright and the Mets, but nothing concrete has been reported. Lots of “the Mets really like, Wright and want him to be the face of the franchise” stuff.  Like a boy saying he likes a girl, maybe like-likes her, but hasn’t asked her out.

Maybe it’s been a matter of the Mets getting their financial house in order. Maybe it’s been the Mets watching Wright blister the ball so far this year. Their great-but-somehow-still-underrated third basemen is only hitting .400/.489/.591 on the season while playing in 31 of 35 games.

So now maybe they’ll have the courage to ask him out.

    The best part about David’s season has been his defense. He’s going to win another Gold Glove.

    Could be risky. Never make a big lfe decision when you are either happy or overjoyed. Mets See Wrights great start and might go long term. I think I would wait until after the season.
    All this in mind the Mets have a pretty poor front office record so you never know with them.

    Please let this be true.

    But not too long a deal. No one should be given more than five years. No one.

      Has the clause requiring players to invest with Bernie Madoff been stripped from the form sections of the contracts yet?

    David Wright is poised to turn down long term offer from the Mets.

    Trade him in the offseason. Put Murphy at third. Address multiple needs with one guy.

    He’s destined to be a Phillie.
