NY Mets Re-sign Wright
« on: November 30, 2012, 08:25:08 AM »
Mets sign wright for 138 mil for 7 yrs was it worth it? Would u rather Reyes? Or just let him go?
Personally i like the deal, they put the deal on the table in order to show they mean bizz - he takes it, finally they spend the money on something worth it someone who will just shut up and play and not care about dodgeball (Bart Scott)

Oy. A jets and a Mets fan. I feel for you
Do you also root for the islanders?
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Reyes was not worth his contract (great trade by marlins to dump him, Buerhle, Buck, etc) - Wright's contract OTOH is not such a substantial overpay, especially when you consider his value to the mets exceeds what he brings from a performance standpoint (there is a huge legion of loyal David Wright/Met fans, who come to games because of him, buy his gear, etc. Mostly kids).

Performance wise they should get at least 3-5 very good years out of him as he is only 29 (30 in a few weeks) and plays a corner IF position. This means they can have a target contention year of 2-3 years and this move still makes sense. Objectively, he can easily be part of the solution and not the problem, even though many bitter fans probably associate him with all the negativity of the past couple of years. I think this was a good signing.
