"Except they are MUCH better. Wright cannot carry a team like those guys."
LOL what? Can't carry a team like Cano and Tex? What?!?
No one player "carries" a team. The team carries the team.
Braun is better than Wright. Teixeira not so much.
As for other 3bs...Cabrera is better. Longoria probably too (though he can't seem to stay on the field).
Headley had a great year in 2012..but hasn't done it long enough. His second best year OPS+ wise is worse than Wright's second worst.
And I'd take Wright over Beltre . Beltre has been really good the past couple years, but that's when he's gotten the opportunity to play in very good hitters parks. He's always been great defensively, but offensively outside of one big year in LA he was pretty meh overall in the 11+ years he played in more pitcher friendly parks in LA and Seattle . I wouldn't trust that he'd put up the same great numbers he put up in TEX/BOS while playing regularly in Citifield. Even with the last 3 years - his career OPS+ is only 112, which is worse than Wright's worst year.
So everyone who disagrees with you is stupid?<
There are a few here who if they do not agree with someonesOpinion they call him stupid. That shows arrogance .
But here is what you don't get. Any team with a guy like Braun or Cabrera in the line-up will have a solid offense. Wright doesn't have that kind of impact on a line-up.
