It looks like David Wright will be a Met for life.

WFAN first reported the third baseman has signed an extension to keep him with the club through 2020.

The contract adds seven years and $122 million dollars to his 2013 salary of $16 million.

The deal is the richest in Mets history.

Wright is already the Mets' all time leader in hits.

Meanwhile, Mariano Rivera is coming back to the Bronx, agreeing to a $10 million contract to pitch for the Yankees next season.

The Yankees now turn their focus to finding a catcher following Russell Martin's departure. He's reportedly agreed to a two year deal with the Pirates.
