David Wright hit his third spring homer as part of a nine-run seventh inning Saturday as the Mets topped a Tigers split-squad.
It was a scoreless game until the bottom of the seventh, when Wright, Daniel Murphy, Gary Matthews Jr. and Jason Bay all homered as part of a huge frame. The Tigers went on to score one in the eighth, but it ended up being a 9-1 game. Wright's homer was his third in just 18 at-bats this spring. Those hoping he might be undervalued on draft day have to be disappointed.

Although I am delighted to see Wright bashing home runs in balmy Florida, wasn't it you who said,

He was certainly better than Wright last year, but the numbers do not support your Longoria argument at all:

Zimmerman: .292, 110 R, 33 HR, 106 RBI, 2 SB

Longoria: .281 AVG, 100 R, 33 HR, 113 RBI, 9 SB

Looks pretty much like a wash, though since Longo had more RBI and more SBs with a negligible average disparity, I'd favor him more then (and WAY more now) 8-o



Yahoo's final ranking....

Zimmerman - 29th.

Longoria - 31st.


With respect, what does that have do do with anything? If they value his 9-point average difference and 10 runs more than Longo's 7 extra RBIs and 7 SBs, then that's fine but saying he was better based on Yahoo's semi-arbitrary ranking of Zimm being 2 spots higher as your only piece of evidence doesn't change the fact that Longo was as good or better and I'd WAY rather have him than Zimm this year...



With respect it has to do with them having incredibly similar seasons last year....being basically the same age......yet having drastically different draft positions.

David Wright delivered a solo homer and a two-run double Friday as the Mets and Marlins played to an 8-8 tie in 10 innings.
It was Wright's first multihit game of the spring, but he's still hitting a respectable .263 and he now has four homers in 38 at-bats. Mets manager Jerry Manuel appears to have settled on hitting him ahead of Jason Bay in the lineup, which appears to be the right move to us. It remains to be seen whether they'll bat third and fourth or fourth and fifth initially.

Wright looked great against Florida. The balls were flying because of the wind, but overall his spring should be indicative that last year was a fluke. Where he is being drafted seems to be solid value, early-mid 2nd round and can get into the 1st round next year. I would expect 26-30 hrs from him.

Many of those criticisms of Wright were already brought up in this thread (by me actually :-D ). I didn't know about the three year decline against righties though.

It's hard to know how Wright will do in 2010 with this unprecedented decline while so young...I think just writing it off as some sort of anomalous season is dangerous. He definitely has the youth and ability to fully rebound, but his metrics were in such decline across the board in 2009 that it has to raise concern. Since I see something around 22/22/.300, he's not worth it to me where he's being drafted.
