Mets ready to sign David Wright to BIG Extension?


Reasons to Smile?
New York Post's Joel Sherman has spoken to more than ten executives outside the Mets organization who believe the team will re-sign David Wright and relatively soon.

It's a public relations move as much as a baseball move, plus getting him signed quickly will allow them to fine tune their off-season plans.

Officials expect Wright to receive a six-year, $127MM extension that, when combined with his $16MM club option for next year, would be worth a total of seven years and $143MM.

It would make Wright the highest paid Met in history (ahead of Johan Santana) and the second high paid third baseman in history (behind Alex Rodriguez).
