David Wright is set to become the most expensive assistant in the history of mankind. Multiple reports say he is moving into the Mets front office to be a special assistant to GM Brodie Van Wagenen.
Special indeed — Wright is still due $27 million on the final two years of his contract. And it will reportedly only be a part-time job. Not a bad way to make a living.
But seriously folks, David Wright will make a good addition to the Mets front office. Obviously he knows the game and perhaps even better, he knows this team; he has been around long enough to see all the dysfunction. Maybe he can help the team become a better operation. He certainly can’t hurt.
