Expecting big bounce from Mets' Wright


How unprecedented was David Wright's power outage last season? As Eric Seidman writes, literally unprecedented:

Wright

Obviously, before dismissing Seidman's prediction you should RTWA.

I expect a big year out of Wright, too.

There's another way to look at this, though. If something literally unprecedented happens, shouldn't we at least consider the possibility that our usual models don't tell us what we want to know?

I believe in the projection, too. But probably not with quite as much conviction as I would if Wright's 2009 season, you know, precedented.
