Why is it assumed that David Wright is going to be a star?

Recommended Posts

Yet again, Yanks fans proving why people worldwide despise the Yankees.

Melky freaking Cabrera is better than David Wright? How about Cabrera tracks a single fly ball without dropping it first?

Wright, for a young player, has a tremendous command of the strike zone, has an exceedingly quick bat, is a gifted athlete who can hit for power and steal bases, and will improve defensively. His glove has been very shaky but he's not a butcher over there in the least.

Let's not forget that Wright is in essence a rookie on this club. Playing a half season for Art Howe and the tanking Mets last year did him no favors. This year he's just scratching the surface of what kind of player he'll end up being.

In two seasons the Mets will be fielding a team with Wright, Reyes, Lastings Milledge and Carlos Beltran as core players in their line-up. At the same time the Yanks will be spending 30 mil per season to pry guys like Chris Shleton out of Detroit.

Melky Cabrera my ass.

If Wright plays just a LITTLE better we MIGHT be able to trick the Yanks into giving us Melky Cabrera for him. MIGHT.

Who plays shortstop for the Yankees? Certainly not some light-hitting, average defense playing primadonna!

No, he's the AL MVP

Don't you have to make the playoffs to be an MVP?
