Mets Mets, Wright make a deal to run through 2020

Quote:
David Wright has agreed to a seven-year contract extension that could make him a Met for life.

Wright and the Mets came to terms early Friday morning on a seven-year, $122 million extension to keep the six-time All-Star and face of the franchise in New York, according to multiple baseball sources. The Mets have not made an announcement regarding the agreement and do not expect to do so until early next week.

The Mets will tack on Wright's extension to the $16 million he is already owed for 2013, bringing the total value of the deal to $138 million, the most lucrative contract in club history. Johan Santana held the previous record of total value with the six-year, $137.5 million contract he signed in 2008.

"I just think it's a great statement for everybody to have this guy wrapped up," manager Terry Collins said via telephone Friday morning. "I knew David wanted to stay. I knew that certainly the organization wanted to keep him and I thought there would be a common ground."

After a sudden flurry of action this week followed months of relative inactivity in negotiations, Wright and the Mets struck a deal a few hours after club officials attended a benefit dinner in New Jersey for a team employee fighting breast cancer. The Mets cannot make the deal official yet because Wright is traveling to Florida this weekend to attend teammate Daniel Murphy's wedding and will not be available to take a physical exam until early next week.
