    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.

    I'm seeing that the 8th year is an option year

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

    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.

    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.

    He'll still be good in 5 years IMO before we see a dropoff meaning, he's well worth this deal.

    7 yr extension for $122 million. Great team friendly deal.

    BJ Upton gets $15mil/yr for hitting .240ish for 4 straight yrs..... Wright at this price is great considering the contracts players been getting these days.

    It's actually a 7 year extension worth $122MM. Add in his 2013 salary and that's where you get 8/$138MM.

    Great deal for the Mets and I always love when players stick with one franchise.

    so in two years hanley and pablo hit free agency, bet this is where they start the negotiation at.

    Would the Mets ever consider moving DWright to 1B down the road?
