Wright and the club agreed this morning to a 7 year extension on top of the upcoming season for which he was already under contract. The total deal will keep David in blue and orange for the next 8 years, at the lofty price of just under $140 million, roughly $17.5 million per season. The contract is the largest club history, surpassing the $137.5 million given to Johan Santana before the 2008 season.

David Wright was drafted by the Mets in 2001, and made his major league debut in 2004. Six times and all-star and twice the winner of the Gold Glove, Wright has grown into the unquestioned leader of the team. David is already the franchise’s all-time leader in hits, walks, runs and extra base hits and will almost surely surpass Darryl Strawberry for the lead in home runs within the next few seasons.
