    As a Cubs fan this is disappointing, but as a baseball fan this is good. I wasn't really expecting the Mets to lose Reyes and Wright in back to back off seasons

    Is that an exit off the turnpike?
    "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

    I see you're failing to understand that Wright wasn't in free agency, Upton was.

    This is where he belongs.

    Cant worry about payroll implications as him and Niese are now the only two contracted players post 2013.
    Dang is that true? Talk about a busy offseason...

    Good for the Mets.

    Teams are simply not letting their stars to get to FA anymore. Either sign them or deal them.

    Agreed with Mel. Awesome player for that franchise and just in general. Great talent...with great meaning what it should mean and not being watered down.

    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....

    Seems right to me. I mentioned in the other thread how Wright wanted to be the highest paid Met of all time, and he got $500k more than Johan Santana did.

    David Wright signs 8 year, 138 mil extension with the Mets!

    Wright is on the decline, this was an awful deal.

    Trade David Wrongz!

    He'll move to the OF if he can't play 3B. He's a good enough athlete to play the position.
