Coors is still a hitters park, its just not the softball stadium every pitcher grew to hate in the 90s. Atkins does hit better on the road which bodes well for his future.
That being said, I don't think the difference between the two players speaks much to Wright being overrated. It speaks volumes about how underappreciated Atkins has been this season. He will still likely be a teen-round pick next year with a good half dozen 3B picked in front of him. Chances are guys like Crede, Rolen, and Chipper will be taken ahead of him leaving a happy owner grabbing him for very cheap.
