This could have affected his road numbers as well because I can only imagine that it would be difficult to try to alternate between being a line drive hitter and a fly ball hitter from home series to road series.

I hate to believe that the new stadium caused he lack of well everything but avg and sbs. But i have read articles saying the stadium mismatches his swing. But if that were true you would think he would at least put numbers up when on the road.
My guess was that without Reyes on the base paths causing trouble and beltran batting behind him they are just pitching around him. But there was a time when both reyes and beltran were healthy and wright still wasn't doing anything.
But look, a guy batting .330 who is obviously making good contact with the ball to put the ball into play, maybe he did just lose his power stroke? Its hard to fathom a guy who hit 30 hrs for a couple years suddenly can barely muster 10. So whats going on?
Needless to say he will be on my keeper list unless i get an offer to help me run away with my league this year. But lets talk next year, are we nuts to think we have seen the last of the old 30/30 Wright? Will we be stuck with the 10/30 wright from now on?
