    Longoria's deal has no effect on Wright, I'm just shocked the Rays are committing that much money to him, even if it isn't for 4 more years or so.

    The Mets should follow the example.

    They are winning though, but yeah if the Mets can't re-sign their franchise player, they are a disgrace to baseball and NYC.

    Perhaps to NYC. Regardless, $20 million is too high of an average annual salary for Wright unless pissing at least $2 million/year into the wind is someone's favorite hobby. $16m/year average annual salary seems low to me since DW plays in NYC. An average of $18m/year to me is a compromise between both parties that should be attainable -- especially if the duration is a year or two shorter. If Wright rejects a 5+ year offer like that, he's a goner imo.
    "The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson

    Would you let him walk over 12-14 million cumulatively over 6-7 years?

    I don't think that should be a deal breaker.

    $20M per year is not crippling at all, unless you're financially incapable of funding a baseball team.

    Why is $20M too high, but $18M is fine?

    Wright will be a goner for one reason and one reason only, the Coupons won't pay him what he's worth.

    How is $18M or so over 6-7 years for THE TEAMS BEST EVER POSITION PLAYER a big deal? sounds more like an excuse to me.

    and they should compromise...7 years and $110 Mil...that way, DW gets the years that he wants; and the Wilpons give up the money that they want...

    Yeah.

    This more than anything else is whats making me question my fandom.
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    It's an ego thing. Would you want to see other workers that aren't as good as you making more money than you?

    Ehhh. That stuff never really bothered me. The owners have a lot more money than the players do. And some of those guys were born with silvers spoons in their mouths and didn't even need to do anything to earn the money.


    Anyway, as for the Longoria deal. It's sorta related to Wright, but not completely. Longo was signed through 2016...the Rays really didn't have any need to do this right now and take on excess risk...but they did...so for committing this much earlier than they really have to they save money. If Longo was a soon to be FA he'd likely be getting more than 100/6

    What is he worth?

    He's not worth $18m/year imo. An average of $20m/year over 5+ years would be ridiculous.

    Sure he is lol. Michael BOURN is probably going to get that much in FA. No one gets paid what they are worth these days.

    He might not be but if they are ok with 18 million a season over 5+ years i don't see how 20 million annually will be a deal breaker.
