Wright Takes Page Out Of Reyes Playbook, Says Wont Negotiate During Season

Here’s something that might sound vaguely familiar. According to MetsBlog, David Wright told Ed Coleman of WFAN that he will not discuss a contract extension during the season, but would be willing to discuss a new deal during the off-season.

So let me see if I got this straight…

  • A Mets homegrown star spends most of the offseason running his mouth off about wanting to stay with the Mets for the rest of his career.
  • The front office basically ignores the homegrown player and says we’ve got plenty of time to talk about a new contract later on in the season.
  • The homegrown star becomes one of the National League’s top three players in batting average.
  • Rumors begin to circulate that the front office is going to speak to the homegrown star’s agent and that an offer may or may not be in the works.
  • The homegrown star says he won’t negotiate a new contract during the season and will not discuss anything until the offseason.

Okay, got it…
