Wright On

There's an article in the current Inside Pitch about the rate at which Johan Santana can approach some Mets milestones. Admittedly, he's a few years away from anything of significance. Of a more immediate nature, David Wright is going to climb some team lists this season. * Wright currently ranks 5th in team history with 130 home runs. With 25, he'll pass Dave Kingman into 4th place on the Mets all-time list. * Wright ranks 7th in Mets history in RBI with 489. If healthy, he'll pass Cleon Jones (521) and Edgardo Alfonzo (538) for sure. A 126 RBI season slips him past Ed Kranepool (614) into 4th place. * Wright (819) should also move into the top 10 on the all-time Mets hit list. Jose Reyes (919) will as well. The current 10-spot holder is Keith Hernandez with 939, 20 more than Reyes and 120 more than Wright. Reyes should be Top 5 by the end of the season, as he's 110 hits behind current 5-spot holder Bud Harrelson (1,029). Wright's top target is 9th-place h
