Evidence of David Wright's Value


• Wright’s first full season in the majors was 2005. Since that point, he’s clearly been among the elite third basemen in baseball.

BA .301 2nd
HR 190 4th
RBI 778 2nd
2B 305 1st
XBH 513 1st

• Wright has always had a dynamic blend of power, speed and ability to get on base. In fact, perhaps no third basemen in the Live Ball Era has demonstrated his broad base of skills over such a long period of time.

• Wright had a renaissance season in many ways in 2012, producing his best season statistically since 2008. As measured by Wins Above Replacement (WAR), Wright was the fourth-most valuable position player in the National League in 2012.
