Who Would You Rather Have: David Wright or Mark Reynolds?

I think it is safe to say that Citifield is an extreme pitchers park, and that HRs by Mets hitters will be hard to come by in 2009. Could change in 2010. With that said, after 2+ months of play, Mets 3Bman David Wright has all of 3 HRs. I don't think roto owners were expecting Wright to be on pace for 8 HRs when they drafted him in the 1st round in most NL-only and mixed league drafts this year.

Then you have the case of Mark Reynolds, who coming into the season was on the verge of platoon work at 3B in Arizona if he didn't cut down on the strikeouts and improve his defense. Well, Reynolds is still on pace for 200+ strikeouts, but he is on pace to walk 85 times this year, and has increased his OBP from .320 in 2008 to .360 presently.

Wright's is hitting .345-.448-.500 with 3 HRs and 34 RBI and 14 SBs. He is on pace for 8 HRs, 100 RBI and 41 SBs.

Reynolds is hitting .264-.360-.524 with 14 HRs, 36 RBI and 12 SBs. He is on pace for 39 HRs, 102 RBI and 34 SBs.

Who would you rather have for your roto/fantasy team for the rest of 2009?

Better question: how far does David Wright drop in drafts in 2010?
