    David Wright

    If this season is not an aberration for David Wright, the Mets are not just a shortstop and left fielder away from legitimate contention.

    Very true. Let's not even get into payroll anchor Curtis Granderson over the next 3 years.

    Another moronic SA signing for a streaky player whose slumps last longer with age than his hitting streaks.

    Bad fit for the ballpark too, his value came from hitting bombs in a small park where his declining defensive skills, in particular his weak arm, were less of an issue. That's not Citi Field which is tough for home runs and has a vast OF. His decline was clear before Sandy Alderson gave him all that money.

    Yeah he's always been streaky it's easier to carry a streaky guy when you have a good offense.

    Similarly who's to say Lucas Duda's season isn't an aberration?
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    In 2010, Duda posted this in Buffalo .302/.414/.597/1.011.
    In 2011, He posted a slash line of .292/.370/.482/.852 in NY.
    An aberration?

    They intentionally walked Murphy to get to Wright.

    There's always some doubt that a player might not replicate a breakout year, whatever the numbers say. He'll probably be fine though.

    David will be fine. He just needs to split from his wife and start banging other bimbos again.
    Omar Minaya in 9 Expos/Mets Drafts - 84.6 WAR (Avg 9.4 per class)
    Sandy Alderson in 4 Padres Drafts - 87.1 WAR (Avg 21.8 per class)

    Terry Collins has destroyed 3 clubhouses on 2 different continents and is now working on #4. Quite possibly the worst manager in Major League History.

    Put this idiot into a cannon and fire him into the East River.

    Nope. Lost all faith in Wright. He looks absolutely terrible this year, captain my ***. He's nothing but a moron in a class full of retards at this point.

    Still, no one, heading into this season, thought Duda would provide this level of production this season. He was the default choice as our first baseman.

    I agree with you though he certainly looks like he's finally figured it out now. But things can change from one season to the next. It's what keeps the Zen Master in business.

    I did.
    You also thought Chris Young was a good signing and would be way more productive and better than Nelson Cruz. When you make so many predictions, eventually you'll nail one. Even a blind squirrel can find a nut.

    Already well covered. Everybody misses some. I've hit way more of my predictions from the off season than I've been wrong about. Way more.
