The Mets aren't saying much about their ongoing negotiations with David Wright, but they've reportedly made him a substantial offer. According to the Daily News, they've offered a seven-year extension worth "well above $100 million." The good news here is that the Mets appear willing to make Wright a fair offer, though details are still fairly vague. After all, "well above $100 million" could mean a lot of things, and that's assuming the report is totally accurate.
The Mets reportedly had made Wright a six-year, $100 million offer yesterday — one that Fox Sports said he was "certain" to turn down, preferring to sign a deal lasting seven years or longer. Wright has one year left on his current deal, and that six-year, $100 million extension would have been similar to the ones given to Evan Longoria and Ryan Zimmerman. And so if it was a seventh year he wanted, he can reportedly get it, though again, the exact dollar figure of the offer isn't publicly known. (Obviously, that particular detail sort of makes a big difference.)
If nothing else, the Mets look to be serious about locking up their franchise player, but this won't necessarily be finalized soon: According to an ESPN source, the idea that a deal could be reached this week is "improbable." In other words, stay tuned.
