BREAKING- METS 3B DAVID WRIGHT SIGNS A 7-YEAR CONTRACT EXTENSION THROUGH 2020, WITH AN OPTION FOR 2021. The Mets star needed to be extended because Johan Santana and R.A. Dickey, who both carried the team, might not have the type of season in 2013 that they did in 2012. Wright is the face of the franchise in Flushing. Good choice signing him long term. He hits lots of doubles and homers.
