David Wright: NL MVP?

Postby GreenMonsterGoon » Sat Apr 08, 2006 10:30 am

I targeted David Wright as my most common first round pick. His start is suggesting we might see a rise in HR totals, a stable .320 BA, incremental increases in Runs and RBI (given the Delgado factor), and at least stable SB totals - although the mets are showing they still love to run. Is 35 HR, 30 SB, 110 RS, 110RBI, and .320 BA out of the question? If not, Is he the NL MVP?
D-Mat, Schilling, Beckett, and Papelbon - Wow!

Pujols is still the MVP. Wright should have a great year, but I don't think he can put up Pujols like numbers yet.

I think Wright will fall short of Pujols, but he could very well be the runner up, and I think he'll be the best 3B in the NL, and probably the best overall behind A-Rod.

I don't know if he'll win it, but by the chants at Shea it's what the Met faithful want. ;-7

If Bonds stays healthy he will be the MVP IMO. I'll be ecstatic even if Wright comes in 3rd behind Bonds and Pujols.

That's a possibility, but I think Bonds' games played will be so limited that his totals may not be there. There's only so much you can do in 100 games, and that may even count against him in the race...

Even as a Giants fan I'm in no way putting Bonds near Pujols or Wright in MVP voting. Wright may come close, but it'll definitely be Pujols taking home the award.

I doubt Bonds will have enough counting numbers to win NL MVP (espcially if he sits out every time there is light rain in the forecast). Even if he is a the most valueable player some writers won't vote for him.

Wright has an outside chance @ MVP, but Pujols has the inside track.

Does anyone else think 30 SBs is a bit much for him?
