"The 90 wins is about challenge. It's about changing the conversation. It's about framing questions for ourselves as to how we get there. So I stand by the notion that we need to get better, and in doing so we need to set concrete goals for ourselves so that we have sort of specific conversations among ourselves about how we're going to get there." -- Mr. Alderson
If you're going to get rid of Reyes and Wright then you have to, IMO, do everything in your power to trade away Beltran, K-Rod, Santana, Bay and any single thing on this team that people want. No point keeping the vets if you're junking the guys in their prime. I think next year it would just be "Ike and some guys." Come to CITI field and see Ike and some guys you've never heard of take on so and so..
i just dont think wright is a 3 hitter. he always did much better hitting in the 5 hole behind beltran and delgado. Since he has moved to the 3 spot he hasnt been the same. Maybe its because the team has had injuries and he hasnt had protection but this year the line up is full and he is off to a slow start so i think it would be in our and his best interest if he were to be traded
not many teams have 3B put up anywhere close to Wrights numbers.
He's a streaky hitter, he will bounce back and at the end of the year will put up .290/30HR/100RBI/30 SB's.
The point is not to trade David just for the sake of trading him, the point is getting impact prospects in return that would help the organization in a few years and the long-run.
We can still get Top 5 value for Wright, even though he's on the decline.(Pujols can still been a beast the past two years, Wright has not) His defense is suspect, and the K's are alarming. I'd rather have a young ace and quality position players than David Wright.
im ready for all the "trade wright" cries again. if we were to trade him i hope he goes nuts against us to make all you haters choke on your words...itd be a sin to see him in another uniform. hes done alot more for us than you want to believe.
ELI MANNING IS ELITE !
Ruben Tejada = The Machine!
He can do whatever he likes, all I want is a player that doesn't choke when you need them. We've all seen it.
With RISP he's hitting over .295 in his career. This year it's about .240, but once he gets hot he'll be fine. Jason Bay is Jason Bay at this point, but we're not talking about him.

They both are scared hitters, and I don't want that on my team. His career is irrevelavnt to me now, he is sucking right now.... As is Bay. But at least Wright can still hit HR's.
Bay shouldn't even be mentioned with Wright - his contract is looking like Oliver Perez Jr.
His mighty ~1 win last year and 0 wins so far this year hardly take him out of the "terrible signings" category. He produced less than part-time, washout Andruw Jones (first player that came to mind who sucks but undoubtedly wasn't getting paid $15 million to do it) did last year, and less than 95% of bench players so far this year.
If he continues down this road, it is another Oliver Perez contract, big money, pathetic results. It's obviously not AS bad as Perez was, but I don't even know if that's possible to do as a full time starter in the OF.
Omar was a terrible GM, and I can't blame Jason Bay for taking the money he was stupid enough to give him, but seriously I see everyone get on Wright's *** for sucking (which he has been) and Jason Bay somehow fail to get recognition despite making more money and sucking 2x as bad while never doing a damn thing for this team.
