Heard in WFAN that the deal was structured for Wright to earn most of the money in the middle of the deal. Wright apparently asked for it that way specifically so the team could have flexibility this year and next to add to the team, and so that he didn't become a financial burden at the tail end of the deal.
Classy move by Wright looking out for the organization. Thank god this is wrapped up

Can't stand the mets, but love DWright...good for him and the Mets....
So glad David structured his contract like that. It's awesome. I think they'll add a solid OFer this year, and then sign one or two next offseason. With that, they'll definitely be able to compete in the NL
this is not true ..... I can't find this anywhere ... anyone got another link?
edit: Nevermind ... I found it
Overpaid by 2 million, shoulda been 8/136
There are no men like me, only me.
If he stays at 3B the over/under on games played per year is about 114.
6/27/09: “We expect [Rondo] to play by the rules and be a leader as a point guard. We need him to be more of a leader,” Ainge said. “There were just a couple situations where he was late this year, I don’t know if he was sitting in his car, but showed up late and the rest of the team was there. We have team rules and you have to be on time. He was fined for being late, he said he was stuck in traffic, and it’s just unacceptable.”
Some jerks never learn.....
I would say he averages 150 games per year until 35 and 125 games after 35.
Presenting the 2013 New York Mets Outfield.
Thank the Lord above. Even if the Mets got a great package in return, it would just be devestating to see neither him or Reyes on the left side of the infield.
