David Wright has been through a lot with the Mets' organization.
He debuted during the gloomy days of the Art Howe era while he was a budding 21-year-old star. Within one year, he was one of the biggest forces on an up-and-coming team threatening to sneak in as the wild card winners.
By 2006—during his age-23 season—Wright was already a top-10 finisher in the NL MVP voting.
During the team's epic collapses of 2007 and 2008, Wright received a great deal of criticism despite his incredible play for not being more of a vocal leader during their demise.
Regardless, he was playing at an MVP level and he would have won in '07 if not for the failures of the rest of the team.
Since then, Wright has been forced to play in an unfavorable home ballpark, recover from a concussion, broken back and provide the lone offensive threat for a team in the doldrums.
Wright has accrued enough equity in this city that he should decide where he ultimately wants to play.
He recently told reporters that "there is not a single complaint I have," in regards to his feelings about the Mets franchise.
Now, the feeling must be mutual in order for him to remain a Met.
Does Fred Wilpon feel the same about him?
