Six-time All-Star and two-time Gold Glove third baseman, David Wright, will be spending the next eight years in Flushing, Queens after re-signing an extension deal with the New York Mets.

Today, Wright agreed on an eight-year contract with the Mets worth $138 million dollars. During Winter Meetings, the Mets held a Wednesday news conference officially announcing to the media about Wright’s signing.

“The ownership with me starting out as an eighteen year-old, it’s become a family.” Wright said. “I’m humbled, excited and I cannot thank them (Mets’ front office) enough for the commitment they’ve made to me the first nine years and the next eight. It’s been a blessing, a pleasure to play for you guys and there’s going to be a lot of good times to come.”

David Wright has been the most consistent player for the New York Mets for a long time so it was obviously a clever move by the Mets’ organization to retain his abilities in New York. Throughout the past nine years with the Mets, David Wright had posted a .301 batting average, 204 homeruns, and 818 RBIs. Wright plans to continue the same offensive attack in the next eight years.

Now that the Wright deal is finished, the New York Mets turn their attention to another important player in starting pitcher R.A. Dickey, who hasn’t yet agreed to an extension with the team.

The Mets might not be competitive at all this coming season, but should have a better offensive roster in the next two to three years.
