Source: Mets sign Wright to 7/122

Any way he can play 3rd and LF at the same time?

That's actually way less than I thought he'd get.

Just put him in LF. Those grounders to third will get to him eventually.

@1--He'll be an antique by the time the contract ends, and if 2012 had been like 2009-2011*** is there any chance Wright would have gotten more than four years? Wright probably got an extra $50-60m out of one season's work. Not bad.

If Wright left anything on the table, it was probably a pen or something.

*** bWAR: 4.3, 4.0, 2.5
fWAR 3.5, 4.0, 1.9

Both included fielding numbers that strong suggested a move off of 1B within a few years was going to be necessary. He wasn't going to get more than 8 years, and it's hard to imagine with a three year record of real decline that one great year was going to put Wright in the 20m bracket.

I like the deal for both sides, but the Mets aren't getting a sure thing by any means.

Both systems show him as excellent last year. May he was just hurt during the two bad years?
