As first reported by WFAN’s Ed Coleman while most of us were sleeping, David Wright and the New York Mets have agreed on a contract extension that will keep him in blue and orange through 2020 and likely ensure that he retires as a Met.
The Mets have not yet officially announced the deal, likely waiting to schedule a press conference for a more civilized hour. :-)
I’m not going to stress about the dollar figures, because we’ve already seen that the Mets will charge as much as they think the market will bear for seats. I’m just going to be happy that the best hitter developed by the Mets’ farm system will be sticking around to keep adding to his career records.
Now can I be greedy and ask for an outfield and a catcher too?
