"It's been a slow winter so far, and I'm confident that we've got something up our sleeve," Wright said on ESPN New York 98.7. "In all reality, I think that the offseason doesn't really necessarily kick off until the winter meetings, and that starts right after Thanksgiving. And everybody knew that the free-agent prices were going to be high this year with the new TV deal and things like that. And obviously the spending is getting up there pretty good. But I think Sandy has got a plan in place and I think he's got a few tricks up his sleeve starting at the winter meetings.
"I am one of those crazy Mets fans. Obviously I love this organization. And I'm 100 percent committed to this organization. Sometimes I feel the Mets fans' pain. I experienced it the last few years on a daily basis. But have some faith because, like I said, I fully expect us to be a much better team moving forward. Hopefully that will begin at the winter meetings or shortly after Thanksgiving."
