The Mets have their man.
WFAN radio reported first that David Wright and the New York Mets have agreed to a $138 million, eight-year contract. The exact details are not yet known, but Andy Martino of the Daily News tweets that the 2013 option that the Mets just exercised was torn up, making this a true eight-year deal rather than an extension on top of the option. If that sort of thing matters to you.
Either way, the deal locks up Wright under contract with the Mets through the 2020 season, when he will be 37.
Next up: R.A. Dickey. And a rebuild around the man who, when this is all said and done, will be the most significant position player in the history of the New York Mets franchise.
