    I would trade Dickey for a big OF bat. Not sure I would put Niese in a deal though. The fact that we got him under contract like that as he's entering his prime is a steal....shouldn't play around with that.

    Of course. I'm only saying that time can change the "ranking" from projection and perception to one based on measurable data.

    Lets be real though. How is this team any better then it was yesterday?
    The Mets added an All-Star quality 3Bman to their roster for the 2014+ seasons.

    I agree with Marty that this is not a step forward. However, it is the first step the Mets have taken in a long time that is not backwards. The wave that was crashing on shore has reached its peak. Now, we have to wait for it to recede. But even if that takes some time, at least we know that the wave won't go further inland than it already has.

In one corner you have Mr. All American, good looking David Wright who says all the right things an in the other side you have a flamboyant Latino with dreadlocks who speaks broken English.
    You also have to consider attitude. I love Reyes, but Wright is a more... shall we say... stable individual.
    see I do not know how anybody can claim this? Reyes is married with kids and has his home in Long Island, wright is single and recently sold his ny pad because he spends most of his off season in Virginia. Reyes has done nothing for people to think he is unstable, he is just a flamboyant guy who shows his great smile when he is doing great.

    also these rankings were made by guys who do not follow the minors as close as some of us do. I was telling people that the Mets farm system was better that given credit for and now you have had many of these guys admit that. Yes is nice to have a top 10 farm, but in the end what matters is that it produces MLB players.

    David Wright with a C on his jersey

    Earlier today, Terry Collins said he will ask Wright to become the team’s official captain, once the new contract is officially announced, according to MLB.com’s Anthony DiComo.

    “He’s the face of this organization and he may not say a lot, but he leads so much by example, so much by the way he leads and carries himself,” Collins told DiComo. “Certainly, I think I’ve got to have that discussion with him.”

    A 'C' would be icing on the cake. He has done so much and is clearly the leader of the team. Committing 8 years to a team that has gone to the playoffs once also says a lot.

    David Wright and Mets agree to 7 year extension

    Let's be frank here, he got paid more than any other third baseman ever not named Alex Rodriguez. Is not like he signed for peanuts either, he deserves it, but is not like he would of much more on the open market.

    As for the C goes, I hate that stuff, but if that is what they want to do, then am fine with it.

    I think it is more for the average Joe fan than it is for anyone else. To them and their kid it is something to get excited about.

    I don't know about anyone else but its just nice to see the Wilpons spend this type of money on a player period.

    Hopefully this is a pretense to next offseason.

    We don't need C's. We need W's.
    "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."
