these will be his peripherals in 2013. We should have traded him when we had the chance.

Do you really expect a .950 OPS from this guy?

It's not fashion week and I don't go. They are really boring. Many of the runway items are not available for sale anyway.

Where'd you pull that number from? He has a career OPS of .887.

Well his second half OPS last season was much lower. Is that a positive sign?

No one ever did expect a 950 OPS from him. My god, and he isn't even being paid like a player who has a 950 OPS. He's being paid like a very good player. Stop thinking in terms of 2004 $. The game has changed. The really good players make 17 million dollars now. The great ones make 20. The generational talent makes 25. Deal with it.

It was .856 in 2010, sank to .771 in 2011, then back up to .883 last year.

Does that look like someone in decline?

If you look at Wright's 06 07 08 numbers and compare them to his current numbers, then yes, he is on the decline.

Look at EVERYONES #s across baseball in 06-08 and compare them to today.

Everyones #s are down. His league adjusted #s (#s compared to what the league is doing that year) has 2012 as David Wrights 2nd best season of his career.

But Wright went from being a superstar to just an above-average player.

Regression. Learn what the average of a year is and don't cherry-pick.

He never recovered from his concussion and it don't seem he ever will. Its a shame because he was a very good hitter the first 3 years

He hit .306/.391/.492/143 last year. Basically the second best of his career. Get help, and stop reading bleacherreport.

I hope D'Arnaud picks up the slack in the Lineup in the power and clutch hitting department because its certainly not coming from wright

He may need another Matt Cain fastball to the head to reverse the funk.

That may be his only cure

The Whiffster has 4 seasons with an OPS above 900. So this was his 5th best season. Nice try, though. Stop reading metsblog and get help.
