David Wright‘s inevitable extension with the Mets: everyone’s talking about it!

  • Mid-April: Andy Martino reports that the Mets want Wright to be the “face of the franchise” and will talk to him about a contract extension this summer;
  • Mid-May: Brian Costa reports that the Mets are planning on offering Wright a contract extension this summer;
  • Last Night: Jon Heyman reports that the Mets plan to talk to Wright about a contract extension this summer. At least Heyman’s report has an actual quote from Sandy Alderson acknowledging that, yes, talks will happen.

But we certainly have talked about talking about it a lot. I hope that the next report has someone actually doing something.

    They’re hoping he’ll go in to a slump so they can low ball him.

    It would be the Wright thing to do.

    There’s really no need for a sense of urgency. Wright isn’t a free agent after this season, so I don’t understand why everyone’s got their panties in a twist. I realize it’s the “in” thing to do to sign your stars to huge, long-term contract extensions well before free agency (See Howard, Ryan for one example) but he’s under team control for next season at it is, and if they don’t work something out now, they’ve got the whole offseason, and of course all of next season to work something out. What’s the hurry?

    Will he be traded before or after the extension?
