I am a David Wright fan. I’ve been an ardent supporter of the Mets’ third baseman since his first call-up to the big leagues in 2004. I’ve seen him produce some of the greatest offensive seasons in franchise history and I’ve seen him make outstanding defensive plays. I’ve also seen him represent the Mets at the All-Star Game more often that not.
I have never been a Chipper Jones fan. I’ve disliked him since before anyone knew his name was Larry. I’ve seen him win only two Silver Slugger Awards and I’ve never seen him win a Gold Glove. I’ve also seen him very little at the All-Star Game, as he has missed the Midsummer Classic more than he has played in it.
I gladly cheer for David Wright. I loudly boo Chipper Jones. That being said, David Wright has a long way to go to be as great as Chipper Jones.
Chipper Jones and David Wright. One is an all-time great. The other is a great Met.
