The All-Decade New York Mets Infield

Third Base: David Wright

Sorry, Zach Lutz fans. The captain is the third baseman for the New York Mets of the 2010s. Wright’s decade was marred by injury, failing to play in 40 games a season after the 2014 campaign.

A career cut short by spinal stenosis, Wright is still a part of the organization, in the front office. Wright still led all third baseman in all the major offensive categories for the decade even with the injuries

Shortstop: Jose Reyes

This was close, but Reyes leading Asdrubal Cabrera by more than three full wins in FWAR swayed me. In 2011, the New York Mets decided not to trade Reyes in the final year of his contract (stupidly).

He became a batting average champion that year and would leave via free agency. After being traded twice, the Colorado Rockies released him after a domestic violence incident. The Mets brought him back and helped lead the club to a Wild Card birth in 2016. Reyes led all shortstops in not only FWAR, but steals, average, and RBI
