David Wright is getting PAID with that fat $122 million/7 year contract. Fuck Powerball and whatnot, David has proved himself to be one of the top defenders in Major League baseball, but also one of the best hitters too. Yeah, he’s lost his power, but the guy flat out knows how to get on base and hit the ball.
He’s stuck it out with the Miserable Mets his whole career, has had shitty hitters around him in the lineup for quite some time now, and the Amazin’s are coming off a strong season. With all that in mind, maybe they can hope to sneak into the wildcard next year? Probably not, but being a hopeful Jets and Mets fan, anything can happen.
