The New York Mets may be hurting, but third baseman David Wright is making some smooth real estate plays. In March, he moved from Manhattan's ultra-hip Flatiron district to a $12,000-per-month rental on the Upper East Side. Now he has listed his tricked-out Flatiron bachelor pad. The asking price? $7.85 million.

Wright purchased the 3-bedroom, 4½-bath, 4,000-square-foot penthouse loft in 2006 for $6.1 million. It includes a salt-water aquarium and gas-fueled stone-and-glass fireplace, as well as a media room with a wall covered with five flat-screen TVs. There also is an upstairs roof deck, complete with a sound system and enclosed hot tub, notoriously delivered by a crane that required shutting down the block of West 21st Street temporarily.

Now if only the last-place Mets, with only 6 wins and 13 losses, could catch a little bit of Wright's real estate mojo.
