Found August 03, 2013 on Overtime:
New York Mets third baseman David Wright has landed on the 15-day disabled list after suffering a hamstring pull during Friday night’s extra innings victory over the Kansas City Royals. Wright is classified as having a Grade 2 strain. It is likely that he will miss a month’s worth of games at the very least. These hamstring injuries are tricky because they tend to linger on and can be easily aggravated. If it comes to a point where Wright is still out through mid-September, I would not rule the Mets out in shutting their captain down for the remainder of the season. “There are certain guys you almost can’t afford to lose,” said manager Terry Collins. “He would fit that category for us.” Wright actually stated that this was an injury that had lingered all the way during last weekend against the Washington Nationals. He also felt it during the series against the Miami Marlins. “I obviously felt it in Washington [last weekend] and got that day off on Sunday and felt it again in Miami t...

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. David Wright and the Mets will definitely take their time and wait this injury out until the hamstring is 100%. So I don’t see the Mets captain returning with the team until at least September 1st.

With Wright Now On DL, Timing Seems Right To Take A Look At Wilmer Flores

It’s now official. The Mets announced that they have placed David Wright on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring. As reported earlier, the Mets recalled Mike Baxter from Triple-A Las Vegas, and he is available for this afternoon’s game. However, I would expect, or should I say hope, that the Mets will promote Wilmer Flores at some point after the weekend and...

Wright strains hamstring during Mets' walk-off win in 11th inning against Royals

Even as the Mets dugout emptied to mob Eric Young Jr. at home plate it didn’t really matter; nothing was going to shake the image of a limping David Wright. Young’s two-run blast in the 11th inning helped the Mets vanquish the red-hot Royals 4-2 on Friday night at Citi Field but the thrilling victory was overshadowed by a right hamstring strain suffered by their captain. ...

Brawny fan can't open bottle of water

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...

Mets Languish Behind Small Market Royals And Pirates

It wasn’t that long ago when New York Mets’ fans and media criticized the team’s lack of aggressiveness in the free-agent market with the smug comment: “This is New York, we’re not the Kansas City Royals or Pittsburgh Pirates.’’ The Pirates are in first place in the NL Central and might be the season’s best story, while the Royals take a nine-game hitting streak...

Here’s A Plan For The Mets On How To Use Wilmer Flores

What is going on with the New York Mets and prospect Wilmer Flores? Can we even call him a prospect anymore? His natural position is third base, but with David Wright on the disabled list they are not bringing up Flores. FLORES: Could he play first? It makes no sense unless the Mets have other plans for Flores. Reading between the lines, my guess is their long- range plan could be...

Featured Post: Placing A Value On Ike Davis

In the top of the eighth inning of last night’s game Ike Davis was scheduled to come up with David Wright on 3rd and 2 outs. Ike was 2 for 3 on the night with an infield hit and an rbi double. Most encouraging was his infield hit to the left side. Something I hadn’t seen from Ike all year. Ike Davis did not come up to bat in the 8th, instead Terry Collins inserted Josh Satin...
