Who Would You Rather Draft: Ryan Zimmerman or David Wright?

New, 7 comments

David Wright has had an unquestionably sub-par season for fantasy/roto owners in 2009. His HRs have dropped dramatically, while his SB have improved. On the other hand, you have Ryan Zimmerman who has fully recovered from his shoulder injury in 2008 to put up some sparking numbers for owners this season. Let's take a look:

Player AB R H HR RBI BB KO SB BA OBP SLG
Wright, David 3B 415 72 134 8 55 65 103 24 .323 .414 .468
Zimmerman, Ryan 3B 432 85 132 24 75 48 82 0 .306 .372 .537

Wright is on pace for a slash line of 11-80-105-35-.323-.412-.461, while Zimmerman is on pace for 35-110-125-0-.305-.371-.533. Granted, Wright is hitting in a lineup that would probably be competing in AAA this season, and he hits in an extreme pitchers park.

Do the Mets move in their fences to keep Wright happy in 2010? If not, I think you have to consider drafting Zimmerman ahead of Wright in 2010.

The next question is: can Mark Reynolds duplicate his 2009 season in 2010?
