The New York Mets are reportedly set to make David Wright the highest paid player in franchise history. Wright and the Mets have come to an agreement on a seven-year, $122 million deal which, coupled with the 29-year old third baseman’s $16 million 2013 option, pushes his total earnings up to $138 million through 2020. Johan Santana’s $137.5 million contract signed in 2008 previously represented the Mets’ richest contract. WFAN’s Ed Coleman broke the Wright extension news early Friday morning.

The New York Mets have a predicament on their hands. David Wright, the club’s all-time leader in hits, extra-base hits, walks and bWAR, is without a contract beyond the 2013 season. Wright is coming off what is arguably his finest season since 2007, in which he rode a strong first half to a .306/.391/.492 finish with 21 home runs and a .376 wOBA. Now it’s up to the Mets, who are seemingly never truly free of financial turmoil, to decide if giving all the money to the face of the franchise is their best option.
It would appear that the Mets and Wright may not have gotten off to a good start.
