    No one gets paid what they are worth though. That is the point I am trying to make. Ryan Zimmerman got 6/100. Wright is better. He deserves more money.

    Joey Votto - $22.5 million
    Adrian Gonzalez - $22.0
    Matt Cain - $21.25
    Ryan Braun - $21.0
    Carl Crawford - $20.285
    Tim Lincecum - $20.25
    Roy Halladay - $20.0
    Matt Kemp - $20.0
    Jose Reyes - $17.66
    Matt Holliday - $17.14

    Where do you think David fits in this range. Is he worth Ryan Braun money? Matt Kemp? Jose Reyes?

    It certainly looks to me that about $18 million a year would be fair. But he'll be 37 by the end of a 7 year deal, and I find it hard to make a case that he'd be worth $18 million at that age. The years might be the deal breaker.

    Why isn't he worth $18M?

    Why would it be ridiculous for a franchise player to earn that contract?

    5+ years at $20M per is exactly what comparable players earn.

    Yeah i mean like YS said if Zimmerman got a 6 yr 100 million dollar extension, Wright is certainly worth that older or not.

    Zimmerman can't even field the position anymore with his inability to throw to 1st base effectively.

    Seems like this would be a reason not to give Wright a long term contract.

    That was due to a very serious shoulder issue.

    Wright has been healthy with the exception of the concussion in 09 and the back last year.

    Either way i still think Wright is worth 6yrs/120 or 7yr/140 the way the current market is set up.

    Zimmerman probably was too at the beginning oh his deal.

    Point is, from the Wilnotppons point of view, it's a big gamble.

    No argument there.

    But it's a hell of a gamble once you go beyond $100 mil.

    And Zim also signed 2 full seasons before he was due to hit FA. (And was coming off a relatively blah year at the time). The closer a player gets to FA, the more expensive he usually becomes

    True but the Mets are offering Wright the better deal in line with that extension Zimmerman and Longoria got.

    The organization also needs to factor in Wright's age in comparison to the other two.

    I think what the Mets are reportedly offering is completely fair, it's just a matter of what Wright does next.
