I have some sources on the inside that say the deal is already done. They're just waiting to announce it. I don't know the particulars on money just that it's done and signed. They're waiting for the most advantageous time from a PR perspective to announce it.

Are you the same guy who had a source that confirmed some sort of three way deal was supposed to happen?

No. I'm not that guy. It was finalized at about 3:18 today and now they're waiting for a prime time moment to announce it. Might be Sunday night. Might be during Christmas. I have no idea when that'll be.

I don't pay attention to inside source stories, but what you are saying could make sense. I don't understand what there is to balk at in this deal. If Wright doesn't except the offer, not only would it then be fair to call him a liar for all the talk about wanting to remain a Met for life, but also it would be an inept business decision to leave that kind of money on the table. That's a lot of risk for little gain.

I don't see how he can't except this offer.

Because it's a back-loaded 7/$124 million with money deferred.

Saying "back loaded" and "with money deferred" all in the same sentence is redundant no?

Why do you act like paying him 16m next year means nothing?

"Saying "back loaded" and "with money deferred" all in the same sentence is redundant no? "

Not really. Typically, deferment refers to money paid after the main contract period is over.

I heard the deal was done at 3:19 PM, so actually he was way off.

I told you. I was the first to break this anywhere. We heard it here first.

When David said the reports were "inaccurate" he meant that they were reporting too much money.

Nope, not redundant, it's two different things. Back-loaded means the salary is low on the front-end and high on the back-end. The deferred money is a portion of each year's salary that won't be paid out until years after the contract expires.

He's getting $16 million next year regardless of an extension or no extension. It was part of his previous contract.
