My Thoughts on the 2010 New York Mets: Third Base

Nick Carlo@@carlo2612Analyst IINovember 7, 2009

David Wright, is one of the best third basemen in the game of baseball.  The New York Mets are lucky to have a player like him, but he still has his flaws.

Ever since Wright made his debut in the bigs he has pretty much, been a star.  He's got great talent and he can be a pretty good team "Captain."

Wright hits for a high average, hits home runs, and steals a solid amount of bases.  He is a Gold Glover in the field, and an expert at anything that has to do with bare hands.

Last year in 2009, Wright had the most awkward season of his young career.  Things were just not working out for him.  Sure, he led the league in batting average for quite some time, but it just wasn't satisfying the fans.

Wright had a problem with hitting home runs last year.  Some say that it was because of the Mets' new stadium, Citi Field.  That is not true, David had around the same amount of home runs both home and away.

Wright had a total of 10 home runs last year.  That is the least amount of home runs in his career.  In his rookie season he had 14 home runs, and after that he hit no less than 25 home runs in each season other than 2009.

No one will ever know what caused David to have his home run drought this year.  I'm sure that he is still capable of hitting around 25-30 home runs and maybe even more.  He just has to go out and play the game of baseball.

He has to stop worrying and have fun.  I know, that it was probably pretty tough to concentrate with all that was going wrong with the Mets last year, but David had to concentrate. 

David Wright is still my favorite player and I believe that he is still progressing as a player and a person.  Wright is going to be the least of my worries for the Mets next season.

I know that he is going to put up great numbers and be a great leader for the team.  I also think that the Mets should reward David with the big "C" on his chest. 

We all know that the Mets have been lacking leadership and that Wright is the best decision for being team captain.

Even if he isn't officially named the captain of the team, I still think that he will lead this team and forget about his awkward season.
