Even if you’re just a moderate Mets fan, you’ve heard all the trade talk that has circulated around our team since day one of spring training.
Be it Jose Reyes, Carlos Beltran or even Francisco Rodriguez, the Mets have some trade chips that could help tilt the balance of a divisional race if traded at the 2011 MLB trade deadline.
One name brought up recently by the New York media willing to pounce on any news tidbit, is the possibility of trading franchise-stud David Wright at the July 31 deadline.
Wright has played his whole career in Queens and has embraced the team as much as the fans have embraced him, but with his continuing inconsistencies at the plate since moving to Citi Field and lingering injury issues, it may be as good a time as any to sell high on number five.
As our majority owner so willingly stated, David Wright is “a really good kid. A very good player. Not a superstar.”
Whether that quote hurt Wright’s perceived stock from other teams or not, maybe it’s just about that time to deal D. Wright, start fresh, and build the future of the Mets around Jose Reyes and his MVP-caliber skills.
Here are 10 potential trade partners if in fact the New York Mets look to deal David Wright this coming trade deadline.
