Cerrone: Mets and Wright $20 Million Apart

Matt Cerrone of MetsBlog says he’s heard that Sandy Alderson and David Wright are just $20 million dollars apart on a new contract extension.

However, based on what I’m hearing, Wright’s camp is thinking seven years and at least $130 million guaranteed, while the Mets are thinking more like six years and around $110 million. Frankly, that’s close enough to make me confident they’ll eventually find a compromise.

Sounds like Wright and the Mets are getting ready to tie the knot for at least the next seven years counting his 2013 option year, and perhaps even eight years if the Wright camp gets their say.
