Reports: Mets offer David Wright seven-year deal worth $119-140 million

MLB

Looking to retain their star third baseman for the long term, the New York Mets have offered David Wright a seven year contract, according to multiple reports.

FoxSports.com’s Ken Rosenthal reports that the deal is worth between $119 and $129 million, while CBSSports.com’s Jon Heyman narrowed that range to $135-140 million.

The Mets picked up Wright’s $16 million team option for the 2013 season last month, after he completed the final year of a five-year, $55 million contract. Now, it appears the team is attempting to make its all-time leader in hits, runs, walks and RBI a Met for life.

The 30-year-old batted .306 with 21 home runs and 93 RBI last season, earning his sixth All-Star Game selection and finishing fifth in the National League with an .883 OPS.

Sorry but in the new economy 10 to 15 million per is max. Wright is a terrific player but I'd suggest if Cabrera is the 3rd. base gold standard he is worth 15M and thus Wright is worth 12.5?
