he had his weakest season since his first. his OBP was still very good but slugging and everything else was down.

one of two things will happen in 2010:
1. he gives up trying to hit home runs and becomes the right handed tony gwynn (though this is not what he's paid to do)
2. he says fuck it, changes his swing to be a straight pull hitter and aims for the fences, killing his average, hiking up his strikeout totals, and overall making him a less valuable player (something no one is paid to do)

neither are optimal outcomes compared to what wright has done up to 2009. building that park with tall walls and big dimensions would work for that team if they focused on building a dominant pitching staff, but instead they are signing overrated flyball hitting outfielders for too much money.

no two ways about it, the mets are in the middle of what will be (barring the hiring of a new GM that will sign more than one pitcher) a somewhat lengthy series of disastrous years.
