Knowing the overall *shape* of an idea, argument, situation requires as many facts, models, opinions as you can take/make to see a whole.
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.

This is great. Wrights the one guy I want here for the rest of his career.

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.”
"You don't know how to drink. Your whole generation, you drink for the wrong reasons. My generation, we drink because it's good, because it feels better than unbuttoning your collar, because we deserve it. We drink because it's what men do."
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.
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 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.
"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."
