In 2003, he had A-Rod, Blalock, Michael Young, Rafael Palmeiro, and if you add Juan Gonzalez and Carl Everett into one player they hit a combined 42 HRs in 600 ABs.
In 2004 and 2005, he had Alfonso Soriano, Hank Blalock and Michael Young
In 2006, he had Ian Kinsler, Michael Young and Gary Matthews "breakout year"
When he moved to the Braves, the guy says he "only" had Chipper in the lineup with him.. Chipper "only" had an OPS of over 1.000, Kelly Johnson, Edgar Renteria, Matt Diaz, Yunel Escobar ALL had OPS above .800
After Beltran, Reyes and Delgado went down, David Wright had Jeff Francoeur and Angel Pagan as the only two hitters that had an OPS above .800.
I honestly believe that lineup played a huge factor in Wright's issues.
It actually makes you start to realize why guys like Billy Butler haven't become huge. And as a Butler owner is starting to make me scared for his chances to become a top fantasy 1B ever, unless he gets some sort of lineup support.

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.
