Thanks for the help on mine. We basically share the same opinion.
I would take Kinsler, who just edges out Wright for me...I wouldn't consider the other two you listed in your title. Wright's lack of power last year was a bit worrying in my eyes. You have Zimmerman at 3B already, who could be a top 5 3B again this year; plus Kinsler rakes when he is healthy...so I would say grab the player who could be the top 2B by years end.
I am a huge Mets fan, and I do not believe that Wright will get back to his 2008 power numbers. I read reports last year that management was trying to get him to spray the ball to all fields last year, which is why he wasn't hitting homers on the road either.
He's a great player in real life, but not as much in fantasy anymore.
I'd go for Kinsler.

I know what you mean. Kinsler is a pretty attractive man. Oh way, I see what you meant there. Nevermind.
On a serious note, I think Wright is the way to roll, even if I am a little surprised that he's as highly regarded as he is after hitting 10--yes, 10--home runs last year. Ten. Funny that a guy who hit half as many home runs as Marlon Byrd is still a consensus 2nd rounder. Let's hope last year was a blip. I've gotta think he'll top 20 this year, and his other numbers were all solid. Third base isn't deep either, so that works in your favour.
