This is fallout from the Jose Reyes contract announcement: Who is more valuable to the Mets, David Wright or Jose Reyes?
That’s like saying, who was more valuable, Mookie Wilson (Mr. let me steal home) or Ray Knight(let me have a stellar 86 season). They are apples and oranges. One gets on base to make a run. The other drives the run in.
The contract terms are different for both these guys. I am sure next year the mets will offer him a sweet deal too. It isnt like Steve Phillips is around to hose it up for us yet again.
To all the Yankee fans watching the Mets until the yankees started winning again. (yes bandwagoners) Met fans only care about one thing. Next Year (yeah i am die hard)! Reyes knows where he will be and so does Wright. This year as a team we have a pennant and possibly a series ring. if Omar gets rid of Wright I’ll have a note for you to give him from me ;-]
This is like asking Yankee fans whose more valuable, Mariano or Jeter. I really don’t think you can pick one over the other because like Steve C. said, they’re sorta apples and oranges.
Can we split the baby and say “Jose Valentin”?
Thankfully, we will (hopefully) never have to choose between one or the other….that is why – almost as much as the 12+ game lead – it feels so good to be a Met’s fan these days.
Even when a suddently suspect bullpen proceeds to drop 2 out of 3 in Miami.
The mets would not be where they are right now if either of the two was not here. To this team they have equal value.
Given the choice between the two, I’m taking David Wright. However, like others have said, it’s fortunate that the Mets likely won’t be forced to make that decision. So hopefully Wrighty is locked to a long deal soon too.
It was a tough choice, but that was the purpose of the exercise. Have a little fun. Beatles or Rolling Stones. Ginger or Mary Ann. Hamburgers or hot dogs.
If I had to choose I’d take Wright because I think the power hitter will have have a longer upside. Sooner or later the legs might go with the speed guy. There aren’t too many guys like Rickey Henderson.
Are you telling me that you’re starting to sweat with the pen? I am.
Hi John –
Has the Mets music library obtained “Wild Thing” yet? Wagner’s new nickname comes with its’ own song.
MaryAnn in a heartbeat
Gun to my head, Wright.
Forgot to answer the original question. Right now I think they are equally important although I suspect that David will become more important in the future.
