Playing his entire career with the New York Mets, David Wright would become one of the better Third Baseman in his time in baseball.

Wright debuted in 2004, and he had his first of what would be seven All-Star Games in 2006.  Wright showed power with six 20 Home Run years, and speed with three 20 SB years, and a great batting eye with seven years over .300.  He had the offensive stats and was an above-average defensive player who had two Gold Gloves.

Wright retired with 1,777 Hits, a .296 Batting Average, and 242 Home Runs.  He could be a fringe candidate to advance to a second ballot, but regardless, he is among the leaders in every Mets offensive category.
