Martino: Mets have made Wright 7-year offer in excess of $100M

Earlier this morning Ken Rosenthal of FOX Sports said that “the Mets offered (David) Wright a six-year, $100 million contract extension on Monday, according to major-league sources.”   With Thanksgiving still on my mind I said that I felt such an offer was like a lukewarm plate of turkey with mashed potatoes, no stuffing or cranberry sauce.

A recent tweet from Andy Martino of the Daily News suggest that the team may have cracked open all the sauces and sides.

Can now report Mets have made Wright a 7 year offer well in excess of $100 mil, according to industry sources. Negotiations in process.

Now that seems more like it.  People, including Ken Rosenthal and Matt Cerrone of, have been suggesting all along that Wright would require a seventh year in his negotiations.

If the Mets started things off at six years I certainly understand it, but if that is the case and they did in fact add a seventh year just a day later, it really tells me they are making REAL effort to keep Wright in a Mets uniform for the rest of his career.  To be honest, I didn’t think that would be the case, but as I’ve said all along, I’ll be happy if I’m wrong.
