I stated I hoped the Mets would acquire a quality OFer, and resign Hairston -- a productive RH bat.
Well I've very relieved that this deal happened. Not that I thought Wright was leaving town anytime soon, but with the Mets you never know until the deal is inked. It's a great deal for both sides and David Wright will end up going down as perhaps the best Met of all time now. Hopefully we can get RA under contract and keep developing the young guns until things turn around for the organization.
Just heard Mets and Wright reach 8 year 138 million dollar contract.
Vey good news in a rather bleak offseason.
Not a coincidence in the slightest that David Wright got $500k more than Johan Santana did to become the highest paid Met of all time.
Is only fair IMO.
Great news. Met for life, just like he should be.
Terry is going to ask Wright to be the official captain of the team.
Worth every penny.
