According to CBS Sports’ Jon Heyman, the Mets are preparing an offer near $100 million for David Wright.
Wright has a $16 million club option for 2013, but the Mets don’t want him getting even a whiff of free agency so they plan to be aggressive this autumn in the hope of working something out long term. R.A. Dickey might also get an extension from the Mets before the winter hits. Wright hit .306/.391/.492 with 21 homers and 93 RBI in 156 games this season while playing excellent defense at third base. He turns 30 years old in December.
