    Wright has been very durable considering the strenous nature of the position.

    Aside from the back injury in 2011 and the freak wild pitch concussion from Matt Cain in 09 the injury tag is not applicable to describe Wrights career.

    He will be 30 next year but I expect him to remain mostly healthy for the next 3- 4 years.

    When he turns 35 that could be a completely different story.

    Most 34 year old third basemen don't play full time either.


    Only Brooks Robinson has more than 4 seasons with over 150 games played at third base from the age 31 on, and he was a freak, only 16 players have even played more than 2.


    Knock it down to say 130 games.

    Then Robinson has 8
    Vinny Castilla, Gary Gaetti, Wade Boggs, and Ron Cey each have 6 seasons, and another 13 players have had 5 seasons.


    Third basemen just do not age well, and they get hurt rather easily.

    Am on my phone.

    Has Wright been comparably durable to this point in his career to the other guys you mentioned?

    Wright deal for the Mets. I couldn't resist.

    But seriously, it was smart for the Mets to sign him, he's the face of the franchise.

    Hope he's with us until he retires. Good deal for one of the best 3rd basemen in the league.

    Like this deal to start, but the years is a killer. Deal will be bad in the last three years or so.

    Well thats a good sign at least.

    I think the Mets might ask him to move to LF at some point or another considering his athleticism.

    They have Wilmer Flores and Aderlin Rodriguez coming (Flores who can rake, and Rodriguez who has significant power)

    They are both iffy at 3rd but i am guessing if they want to prolong Wright's effectiveness offensively they will have to look into making a move like that.

    It didnt work well for Chipper but maybe it can work for David.

    All I know is David could be a better LF now if they needed him to than the one we have currently (Duda)
