David Wright = Useless April (vent)

Postby shaggyjb » Mon Apr 23, 2007 9:54 pm

Anyone else going to put David Wright on the bench until he wakes up? He is currently the 17th ranked 3B and falling. His power numbers are absolutely non-existent (0 HRs, 4 RBIs) so far, and he is batting freakin' 5th! The overall league average is 7 RBIs. Guys like Rich Aurilia, Mike Lowell, Julio Lugo, etc are showing more power so far. People keep complaining about Chase Utley, but imo, Wright is having a worse start per draft position ratio. With his power outage spilling over from last year, I am seriously worried about when he is going to show some pop.

He batted 5th all of last year. That can't be part of the reasoning. He's just having a slow start to the season. If you move him now, you'll end up regretting it for the rest of the year.
Yes, I was, uh... I was thinking about ordering the tape, the videotape... about the college girls and the... the wild... the wildness. They're going wild or something? Somebody told me... about going wild.

In before the lock...

You should pick up Iwamura for Wright. He's overrated

I have Wright and I am not worried at all. He is in a slump and as I've seen him do before, he will break out of it soon enough.

He slumped all of the second half last season and has started this season in a power funk. Im worried to say the least.

I was planning on benching him tonight for Iwamura (who had good game), but I let Yahoo sucker me into starting him with their game preview article:

"David Wright has struggled since establishing a new franchise-record hitting streak, but a three-game series against one of his favorite opponents could get the young third baseman back on track.
... Wright is a career .387 (24-for-62) hitter with seven home runs and 22 RBIs in 16 games against Colorado. The Mets have won 11 of 16 games in the series since Wright's major-league debut in July 2004."

I was offered Vlad for him at the beginning of the year, right now it looks like I should have taken him.
