They should be about .275 10/15 by his '09 numbers right? Everything points towards it, the insane BABIP, the righties decline, etc. I guess I'd be interested in seeing if any possible former superstar has ever had a season like Wright, a 30/30 threat every year just entering his prime who falls flat on his face and needed an insane BABIP to maintain any respectability.


I don't project his numbers at .275/10/15 because he is still so young...and he's proven to possess tons of talent. But I can't just discount what happened last year. His K rate was particularly alarming in conjunction with his power outage. Like you mentioned, this occurrence seems to be an anomaly in the history of fantasy baseball...there's no precedent to point to for insight. So I temper my expectations. He could show that his entire 2009 season was a statistical outlying anomaly, but I can't help but think there was more to it since his metrics were just so terrible.

I project him around 20/22/.300, because in my opinion he has an equal chance of going 10/20/.280 as he does 30/25/.320. So for drafting purposes I calculate his value as a 20/22/.300 guy.

No brainer, obviously Heyward has shown he can't do anything this season.

I know he's on pace for 162 HRs, but is Wright a generational talent drafted out of HIGH SCHOOL? ;-7

Didn't think so ;-7
