“[David Wright] is the face of the franchise. He is, at worst, the third-most accomplished player in team history (behind Tom Seaver and Mike Piazza) and could well be No. 2. Put it this way: If you translate the Mets to the Yankees, Seaver is the Mets’ Babe Ruth, Piazza their DiMaggio. That means Wright is either their Gehrig or Mantle, relatively speaking.”
