Good news from Met land. Not unexpected but still happy to hear the Mets picked up their options on both D Wright and RA Dickey.
Word is they are beginning discussions on a longterm deal for Wright as well.
This is an obvious move for the Mets and seemingly one even they won’t mess up. Once a deal is signed Wright will be poised to become THE Face of baseball not only in Queens but in NYC at large. Once Jeter’s career winds down in another year or 2, Wright will suddenly be the longest tenured face of baseball in this town.
I don’t doubt the Yankees will have the hottest free agent but Wright will be the only homegrown darling left.
Meanwhile I hope everyone is coping with the aftermath of Sandy. Aside from tree damage BMF came out relatively unscathed but I’m shocked at the detestation along the waterfront in the 5 boros, let alone NJ and beyond.
Hang in there everybody!
