Over. His strikeout rate will drop this year, allowing him to put more balls in play. He will hit between .325-.330 this year. He is freaking awesome.

I'll put a bet on even, that he'll hit exactly .320 this year, or at least within two points of it if the amount of AB's don't give him the opportunity to hit spot on.

Under and the Mets offense is overrated (not that it has anything to do with Wright hitting .320).

David Wright's batting average by month last year.
.303
.284
.290
.307
.378
.283
6 at bats in October

He was remarkably consistent and never had a slump.

He had a .336 avg vs lefties and a .298 avg vs righties, .297 at home vs .315 away, .321 during the day and .298 at night.

The point? No matter where, when or who he hits against he does it incredibly well. He has no weaknesses and I heard someone say before that on chart of the 9 hitting zones, 3 high x 3 wide (think MVP '05 pitching), for a batter his worst for avg last year was middle low and that was still around .280.

The only problem he had last year was that he struck out 113 times in 575 at bats. So far this year however he has struck out a total of once in 42 at bats.

His BB/K went from 38/64 in the 1st half to 34/49 in the 2nd. He had a .409 OBP and .991 OPS in the 2nd half.

He had 29 less at bats in the 2nd half vs the 1st but hit 5 more home runs, had 14 rbis and had 3 more steals.
He is only 23 and getting better and better. The sky is the limit for this kid. I'm not going to say he can't hit .320 down the road or now.

I'd like to see you elaborate on your statement that the Mets' offense is overrated? Beltran was hurt last year, Delgado is a monster, Wright is going to be a stud, Xavier Nady is very underrated, and Floyd is solid. Don't mean to hijack the thread, but that is a ridiculous statement, and an unfounded one in my opinion.

Not to mention the threat Reyes poses when he gets on base.

Reyes is a below average leadoff hitter
LoDuca is an overrated hitting C, he's had one good offensive year.
Beltran is injured this year~ I just don't see him having the monster year people predict
Delgado is great but his Elbow will again limit his playtime
Wright is a monster, I love him
Floyd is unlikely to repeat last year, he'll get hurt at some point
Nady is going to find himself out of the lineup again by the end of the year.
Hernandez will be a blackhole in the lineup.

I hear people calling this the best lineup in baseball blah blah blah, its not even the best lineup in the DIVISION. I'd take the Phillies lineup over this one and it doesn't come anywhere close to the Yanks lineup.
