The New York Mess?

The Mets signed Yankees reject Todd Frazier to a 2-year deal worth $17M last month because David Wright is, once again, out of commission.

Since the beginning of the 2013 season Wright has missed a whopping 489 games -- about 98 games a year, on average -- because of one ailment or another but it hasn't stopped him from collecting $91M during that time.
Even worse, the Mets are on the hook for another $47M whether Wright plays or not.
In his 14 years with the Mets Wright has averaged 113 games, 17 homers and 69 RBI per season. Considering how unreliable Wright is, how can major leaguers whine about teams being reluctant to offer long term, high dollar deals?
Wright is a parasite who hit the lottery and now seems to be happy to sit around and collect money he hasn't earned.
