Mets 3B David Wright tipped his cap to the Citi Field faithful and walked off the field back in September. However, for those who are contemplating their future in the game, windows of opportunity can arise elsewhere.
One of the most popular is a job as an analyst for game broadcasts or national shows. ESPN was ready to bring in Wright as one of their postseason analysts, sending an invitation his way. But the 35-year-old declined their offer, according to The Post's Andrew Marchand.
Along with Wright, current Cubs manager Joe Maddon was also offered the same gig, but he respectively declined as well.
This will most likely not be Wright's final offer for a job off the field. However, it appears he is content with taking time to be with family, and focusing on himself before trying to get back in the game in a different position.
Maybe broadcasting isn't Wright's cup of tea, but he has mentioned a possibility of joining the Mets' front office. Wright told SNY's Andy Martino back in September that he would like to be part of the front office next season.
"I'd love to stay involved," Wright said. "I love being around the game. I obviously love the organization. So I think I could provide value."
So, the move will be the Mets and new GM Brodie Van Wagenen to see if Wright would be interested in making an impact in 2019.
