In Wright’s case, the Mets can only hope their 31-year-old captain’s power outage is the product of a bum shoulder since he is owed $107 million through 2020. Still, .264 with eight home runs is a horrific decline and intolerable for a No. 3 hitter. For all their pitching depth, the coming-into-their-own of Lucas Duda, Juan Lagares and Travis d’Arnaud, and the great promise of Dilson Herrera and Kevin Plawecki, the Mets cannot expect to be any less offensively challenged and inconsistent next year than they’ve been this year if Wright is not the 20-homer, 100-RBI No. 3 hitter for most of his first nine years with them. Even though Wright has but four extra base hits since his last homer, July 11, there is no point in moving him down in the lineup as long as he wants to keep playing this season. The Mets are going to finish fourth — but hopefully not last — anyway, and, if nothing else, it will only further serve to demonstrate just how important Wright’s performance is to their overall fortunes next year.
