The problem with Wright is very simple. He's getting pull happy. Ever since the HR Derby he's been taking huge cuts and trying to pull the ball into left field. Everyone watching him since he came up obviously saw that he has great power to right and right/center. He used to just poke the ball over the right field wall. He went away from what made him good and until he goes back he'll go thru this power drought.
The Braves > Mets it's just their record sucks.
But McCann does normally have relations with David Wright's sister on a nightly basis. He pretty much owns David Wright in every sense of the word. Receipt and everything.
Yes those are my sigs... i think im going to concoct a new one soon, I'm getting tired of this one
Atkins is certainly underappreciated, and I'm just fine with that. At one point in my keeper I offered Teixiera, Figgins and Atkins just for Wright. I finally realized that I'm just fine with Atkins at 3rd, and just to sit tight and enjoy the ride even if I don't end up keeping him.

Two thumbs up for my 200th pick or so.
Wow! If everyone in your league gets 200 picks, I think that qualifies as a deep league

A classic case of a better real-life player than a fantasy player. Wright is truly amazing to watch, i can't believe some of the defensive plays he makes. If i was building a franchise, no doubt Wright is among the top 5 dudes i'd want to have. However, for fantasy purposes, i don't think Wright is even the best at his own position. I think people hype this guy up a lot, but not really know why they do. Playing 3B gives him a little boost, but other than that, i'm not really sure.

Thursday I very much agree.. I love the way Wright plays the game and bought into the hype about his this year, and traded Beltran for him around the All Star game. It's like he's forgotten how to hit recently, I don't know if people are pitching around him and he's not being patient and taking his walks or what since he has little to no protection behind him, but its just frustrating, I expected more.

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.
Agree'd Wright not over rated as much as Atkins is underrated. Althouh we need a hot streak from Wright please!
