Who Is More Valuable To The Mets: R.A. Dickey or David Wright?
Wouldn’t it be just the Mets luck that their top two most productive players are no lock to be with the team at the start of next season?
We should be used to it by now considering we lost our two most productive players last season in Carlos Beltran and Jose Reyes – two players that combined were in the National League’s top five in twelve different offensive categories. The most impressive thing about Carlos Beltran in 2011 was that even though he was a Met for just half a season, he still led the team in Home Runs, On-Base, Slugging, OPS, and was second on the team with 30 Doubles when the season ended.
David Wright and R.A. Dickey are easily this season’s top two performers and like last year’s they also are in the top five in in over a dozen batting and pitching categories and even rank number one in many of them.
Reportedly, negotiations are set to begin with both of them starting tomorrow, but clearly David Wright is the top priority while Dickey will end up voting thumbs up or thumbs down on a two-year offer that annually won’t even come close to the $15 million dollars per season that Jon Heyman is projecting for his market value.
But lets put all that aside for a moment and consider each of their individual seasons. On Tuesday we will announce our MMO Mets Player of the Year for the 2012 season.
I wanted to get some early buzz going ahead of our announcement and find out who you believe was the most outstanding this season.
Tell us also which player has the best trade value right now, and which of the two is more impactful to the success of the 2013 Mets.
We’re basically asking you three questions:
- Who was the 2012 Mets Player of the Year; R.A. Dickey or David Wright?
- Between R.A. Dickey and David Wright, who has the highest trade value?
- Between R.A. Dickey and David Wright, who is more critical to the success of the 2013 Mets?
Let us know what you think…
