    Wow. That's a very good deal.

    EDIT: Well I don't know if he'll earn that money when he's 37-38. But I guess the first several years makes up for it since I thought he might get a little more than that.

    he's going to average $17.25 Mil per season, and he was already due to earn $16 Mil in '13; so basically he's working the next 7 years without much of a raise (by MLB standards)...By comparison, BJ Upton is getting paid $15 Mil per season, and Upton isn't that good....

    Big question will be how he ages. Third basemen don't age well.

    He could always get moved to 1st base later in his career. He could probably play both corners well just like Miguel Cabrera did when Prince Fielder came to the Tigers. I'm sure they can fit David in somewhere

    Yep depending on what happens with Ike or possibly LF.

    Wright has the athleticism for that position i believe.

    He is the face of the Mets franchise.

    This is where he belongs.

    Cant worry about payroll implications as him and Niese are now the only two contracted players post 2013.

    Yep unless they resign Dickey then they have 3.

    Everyone else is arbitration eligible after next year.

    as far as how he will age, he can always move to first, as long as they can get like 6 years out of him at 3rd they should be fine.
