According to a report by CBSSports.com, the New York Mets are expected to offer David Wright about a $100 million when both sides open negotiations.
The New York Mets are serious about re-signing David Wright and making him a Met "for life". The Mets are expected to negotiate throughout the month of October before even considering making a trade.
Wright has a good relationship with both ownership and the players in the clubhouse and he said in the past that he was "extremely optimistic" about re-signing with the Mets.
Wright grew up in Virginia where his favorite player was Cal Ripken and he himself would like to become the Cal Ripken of the Mets, but the Mets have never kept any of its major players in the past.
The Mets have more flexibility now than they did last season when they let Jose Reyes leave for the Miami Marlins and sign a $106 million deal.
