David Wright Hopeful For New York Mets Extension

In a few months, the New York Mets and David Wright will have a small window to negotiate a long-term contract that would keep the third baseman in Queens for the remainder of his career. And according to Wright, he's hopeful the two sides can reach a deal without any hiccups.

"I'm extremely optimistic,'' Wright said in this blog post by CBS Sports' Jon Heyman. "I've really enjoyed it here.''

In the blog post, Heyman makes a pitch aimed at New York owner Fred Wilpon to pay Wright the necessary money to keep the the six-time All Star in a Mets' uniform. The price, thinks Heyman, will be about $160 million for eight years. Though, that price could be less considering Wright admits he really loves playing for the organization.

"There's not a single complaint that I have,'' Wright said. "(The Mets) drafted me as a kid. They developed me. They've given me an opportunity to make a living playing a game. There's a tremendous amount of mutual respect. They've gone above and beyond.''
