Keep in mind also that Blalock will become better as well. Given where he plays and in what lineup, he may put up better power numbers than Wright as well.

If Wright had been hitting 3-5, rather than 6th and 7th all year, then the difference is narrowed about in half. If the player ranked 17th is not "in the class" of the player ranked 10th, then the classes are simply too narrowly drawn.

At least they do to me. Also, MCab's slugging & OPS are basically 60 pts higher. I just think that MCab is the better hitter and will be for many years to come. Wright IS very, very good, but I feel that over the long haul, Miggy C. is just that much better. I could care less where Wright is batting, he is not going to be a .330 hitter. Miggy C will. Or so I think at least.
"ARam isn't even in the discussion. Saying, "If the latter does not get hurt..." is kind of like saying NO's a great town to visit these days, except for Katrina. He'll miss 15+ games every year from now on, is not likely to match Wright's average or SBs. "
Disagree again. ARam has been hurt all year with small nagging injuries, and despite that, he has still put up great numbers. There is no basis whatsoever to say that ARam will not match Wright's batting average. I think it is the other way around. I do not even think that we have see the best that ARam has to offer. Wright will have more steals, but he will not match ARam's power #'s.
And, no, I am not kidding on Blalock. He WILL improve and hits in a great park, surrounded by great hitters. Wright may be better than Hank in the future, but not by much.
