Whats everyone's take on D Wright? The season roto-value is there, but the power's gone. Is it the lineup, is the stadium? Could we reasonably expect a 20-20 2nd half once everyone is back?

I'm thinking of "buying low" on him, he's ina 3/23 minislump right now. Being a first rounder I'd still have to give up a bit though.

Talk amongst yourselves.

He'd still be lacking in the power department, even if the following article holds true, but it would seem that Citi Field has certainly robbed him of some stats this year...

What's the protocol on changing outfield wall dimensions during the offseason? I've heard of it being done in other stadiums (Comerica Park) but was wondering of that's something the Mets would consider with Citi.

I think it's a combination of the lineup and the park and he's striking out too much. The park has had an a big impact on their entire team. Wright admitted he changed his swing some. I really hope he starts hittin some bombs, because I can't have a corner infielder with 10 HR pop!! Ain't gonna get the job done. Not when I was expecting 25!!

Complete bust as a first-rounder. Seems like a lot of those this year (Rollins, Reyes, Sizemore, Hamilton).

i'd like to blame it on the park, which is probably partly to blame, but he isn't even hitting hrs on the road anymore. a quick glance at some of his peripherals doesn't indicate that much has changed dramatically from years past (LD%, FB/GB) except for his HR/FB.
