Best Baseball Player (2008)

DAVID WRIGHT

He hit .300, slugged .500, stole plenty of bases; and he's 22. DAVID WRIGHT also brings energy to the Mets that hasn't been seen around Shea in some time: He's the first out of the dugout to high-five a teammate after a homer; then he takes his place in the back of the line to give more love. The defensive jitters will pass—Wright's already got the most potential of any New York baseballer.
