Reports have surfaced that indicate the New York Mets are determined to keep star third baseman David Wright a Met for life. All was quiet on the homefront regarding Wright and a contract extension thus far this off-season, but since Monday things have been heating up.

The Mets have apparently made David Wright several offers, one reportedly in the seven year, $135-145 million range. Although Wright is nearing 30 years old, he was able to bounce back from injury this past season to bat .306 with 21 home runs.

Both sides are eerily mum on the issue. A Mets spokesman said only that talks are “ongoing”, while General Manager Sandy Alderson was unavailable for comment.

Wright said: ”It was important to me from the very beginning that these negotiations remain confidential and private. I plan on sticking to that.”

The Mets are doing the right thing trying to ink David Wright long term. His production has been top notch, and he has emerged as a team captain and leader. If they plan on getting back to being a potential contender, Wright is a good place to start.
