Wright's .883 OPS this year ranked him 13th in MLB....his .924 OPS in 2008 was also 13th in MLB. His 2007 (which was his best year IMO) ranked him 15th in MLB. So I don't think its completely fair to say he's not what he was...when the league as a whole isn't really what it was when it comes to offense. The "norms" are different now than what they used to be.

    I think its fair to say he hasn't been as consistently good over the last 4 years as he was over the prior 4 years...that much is clear. He was elite every year from 2005 to 2008 and rarely slumped. But just looking at the individual years as a whole his 2012 was right up there with one of his best.

    That's fair, certainly the pitching is better league wide than it was 5 or 6 years ago and Citi Field to me at least is still not as advantageous as Shea Stadium was for hitters which certainly affects Wright's numbers to some degree.

    Losing a guy like Reyes in front of him didn't help much either.
