    David saying the Wright things

    "Of course it's difficult to see your Cy Young Award pitcher and a 20-game winner be traded," Wright said. "But I didn't sign to come back here for kind of a short-term-type, win-now-or-never-win-type approach. I'm going to be here for eight more years. And, this is my opinion: I would rather build and get that solid foundation where you get to the point where we can contend every year and have that solid base.

    "Like I said, the trade fills needs for both sides. Of course, you're talking about losing a 20-game winner. They're very difficult to come by. And I know very little about the younger players we got back. But just from what I've read, you're talking about one of the best catching prospects in the game and one of the best pitching prospects in the game. So how can you not be excited about what the future holds with those two plus the [Matt] Harveys and [Zack] Wheelers? So I'm excited about what the future holds."

    Alderson insisted the Mets are not "punting" the coming season with the subtraction of Dickey and a lack of activity courting higher-end free agents.

    Wright nonetheless understands that next season will be an uphill battle for the Mets.

    "You look around in our division and, of course, with or without R.A. you're talking about a very, very competitive and very, very tough division," Wright said. "Obviously you lose a 20-game winner and we understand that it's going to be a tremendous challenge. But it's the same thing as last year, when the expectations for us as a team from the outside were very low. We got off to a tremendous start and couldn't finish and really trailed off the second half.

    "By no means is this conceding and looking to 2014 and beyond. We're going to go out there and expect to win next year. And, obviously, it sets us up nicely in the upcoming years with some of the young talent that we have."

    I'm quite sure he would have received something similar to that type of deal from someone over in another borough.

    If he did not buy in previously, he did not need to sign the deal. His acceptance predates the 138 million reasons.

    Edit: So now we know Im 3 minutes slower than Clay.
    "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

    138 million reasons? That's a little too many I think.

    I am sure he would of gotten more if he hit the FA market, but he did not and he signed with the Mets and now he has 138 million reasons to say nothing but the right things even if he is not totally pleased with losing a player of the caliber of Dickey.

    So, you are saying that you don't think what he said was genuine?

    I just can't be mad when Wright speaks. I believe that he will play his *** off and will fight hard for wins. I just don't beleive that Sandy isn't punting this season
