New Yorkers have a reputation for being tough, and one fan at Saturday's Mets game at Citi Field looked big and bad enough to kill a rock and put a brick in the hospital. That is, until he tried to open a bottle of water. Once the cameras caught him, it was must-see TV. David Wright could've been having an 18-pitch at-bat against Mariano Rivera, and the announcers wouldn't have been able to turn away from the epic struggle in the stands. Just watch: Your browser does not support iframes. Dude, that's the weakest left-hander since Frank Tanana. I'd tell him to get on the juice, but, well ... Let's just say if they wanna keep kids off PEDs, just show them this. H/T : For The Win

The Mets will have to play wilthout Wright for a while

David Wright was placed on the disabled list a couple days ago, and will not be back anytime soon. David Wright was placed on the 15-day DL, but he will miss more than just 15 days.
