Mets will offer David Wright $100 million

Kim Klement-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

New York wants to make Wright a Met "for life".

The New York Mets are expected to offer third baseman David Wright an initial contract extension offer in the vicinity of $100 million, reports Jon Heyman of CBS Sports:

The Mets appear serious about keeping the home-grown Wright in the fold. The Mets have reached out to Wright and star pitcher R.A. Dickey in recent days, and the club is focused for now on trying to sign both players to extensions.

The goal in Wright's case is to make him a Met "for life."

An offer in the neighborhood of $100 million would likely be for six years, the same deal given to Nationals third baseman Ryan Zimmerman in the spring. Negotiations with the two Met stars are expected to continue in earnest through at least the end of the month, and the 29-year-old Wright recently stated that he is "extremely optimistic" at the prospect of agreeing to a long-term deal with New York.

Wright and Dickey both have large contract options for the 2013 seasons, worth $16 million and $5 million, respectively. If the team cannot come to an agreement on extensions for either player by the option deadline in early November, Heyman speculates the team may look at trade them.
