Who is the best position player in Mets history? The immediate answer is Darryl Strawberry although a quick look at the record book shows that Jose Reyes and David Wright also deserve consideration for that honor. Let’s look at their overall lines and then break the players down by categories.

Wright Not Looking Forward To Trade Rumors

Mets third baseman David Wright took questions from reporters during his second annual Vegas Night charity event. Andy McCullough spoke to Wright who spoke a little about his legacy. “I’ve never been one that wanted to make every last dollar that I could playing this game. I’m obviously very fortunate where if God forbid I got hurt tomorrow, I should be OK financially. But...

Why Reyes wasn't traded and why Wright won't either...

I went to one of Carlos Beltran's last home games as a Met against the Cardinals and there was a large contingent of fans in right field, in fact the crowd was larger then what had become normal in June/July. Many have questioned why Jose Reyes wasn't traded at the deadline, most feel we would have received more in return from a trade then the two picks.  The same rumblings...

Wright Seen As A One-Year Rental And Injury Risk

Paul Hoynse of the Cleveland Plain Dealer fielded a question about the Tribe dealing for David Wright in his mailbag feature. Hey, Hoynsie: Just was watching the MLB Network and they suggested the Tribe make a run at David Wright. Matching Lonnie Chisenhall and a couple young pitchers such as David Huff and Corey Kluber could match up well. – Chris Zanon, Canton Hey, Chris: Like...

Is Wright a Fit for Detroit? I Think So

The reality of trading David Wright is you probably won’t get the type of haul the Rangers received for Mark Teixeira back in 2007. Prospects have become one of the most overvalued commodities in the game today. Teams ask for A-list prospects for B-level talent, and teams with A-level talent more than often see offers with B-prospects as the centerpiece. That’s why making...

Would You Decline Wright’s Option To Sign Josh Hamilton Next Offseason?

After posing this question via twitter, a debate ensued between myself and several Met bloggers including our own Joe D. and Brandon Butler. I thought I would ask the MMO faithful this same query: Would you do anything to sign Josh Hamilton next winter? Even if it meant losing David Wright? Personally, I think it is something to consider. Now that the Rangers have inked Japanese...

Opinion: David Wright has not spoken to Fred Wilpon since May

According to Andy McCullough of The Star-Ledger, David Wright has not spoken to Fred Wilpon since he called Wright to apologize for his comments made in the New Yorker. Via The Star Ledger: Wright said Friday that he has not spoken with Fred Wilpon since the CEO called to apologize. He remains respectful toward his employers, who believe the impeding sale of several minority shares...

New Citi Field Dimensions Taking Shape

  Construction has been ongoing all off season.  As you can see this ball park will still be expansive, but it will just be a little more hitter friedly.  Rememeber those balls that David Wright used to hit out to right center field in Shea, well he may be able to do that once again now that it is no long 415 feet at Citi Field. The dimensions of the home run line will all be...

Relive The Mets “Glory Year”

Back again with two more gems from the Baseball Hall of Fame’s Shop. While going through their merchandise, I ran across these two items. With this hat and this shirt, you can remember the good times when the thought of a Mets dynasty in the NL East was a little less than a crazy pipe dream, Willie Randolph, a young David Wright and Jose Reyes, a 40 homer machine in Carlos Beltran...
