David Wright home run hug with fan becomes heartwarming viral hit

David Wright is one of the few bright spots on a dismal New York Mets team this season and knows it takes more than just any casual fan to come out and see the team at Citi Field.  During Monday's 2-1 victory over the New York Yankees, the Mets' third baseman heard the constant encouragement of one young fan to hit a home run throughout the game and ended up with Wright...

David Wright Proves Captaincy Every Day

There was no other choice but David Wright to be Mets’ captain, and throughout this disappointing season showed again Monday night why he is special and the best position player they ever produced. Daniel Murphy drove in the game-winner and Jon Niese was superb in a bounce-back start, but the Mets don’t win – period – without Wright.               WRIGHT: Proves worth...

Just How Similar is David Wright to Scott Rolen?

When David Wright’s career is over, he’ll undoubtedly be considered the greatest New York Met of all-time. The accomplishments throughout his first nine professional seasons speak for themselves: The franchise’s all-time leader in hits, extra-base hits, runs created, total bases, runs scored, walks, and eventually home runs and games played, Wright could very well find himself...

David Wright homers for fan who earns postgame hug

More good stuff. I caught the last inning of last night’s Mets game and enjoyed the victory (more on the whole Subway Series thing later). For those watching, it was tough to miss David Wright head over to the stands after Bobby Parnell closed it out and share a hug with a fan. As the WB11 crew similarly remarked, it was “awesome” to watch. And you didn’t even know the back...

Subway Series Notes: Harvey Day, ESB Is Orange and Blue, Wright Now Has Most Met Hits Against Yankees

You Mad, Bro? New York Yankees Edition

From SB Nation’s “Pinstriped Bible“: “Bean. Wright.” “oh what the ******* “Well, the closer we are to hitting right.” “Has Jon Niese ever struck out the side in his life before? Holy **** good start, motherlovers.” “Maybe he can hit Wright in the ribs” “NO! BEAN HIM!” “You people lied to me. Apparently this Niese guy is the best pitcher ever....

Mets Game Notes: Wright and Murphy Killing It Against Yankees

Game Notes Prior to tonight’s game, the Mets placed infielder Ruben Tejada on the 15-Day Disabled List with a right quad strain and selected the contract of infielder Omar Quintanilla from Las Vegas (AAA) of the Pacific Coast League. Quintanilla will wear #3 and was hitting .333 (42-126) with 26 runs scored, nine doubles, two triples, two home runs and 18 RBI in 47 games for Las...

Mets Wrap: Jeremy Hefner Finally Gets Victory

David Wright said it would be nice if the Mets played a game when they are in control from start to finish. Such was the case Wednesday night when the Mets gave Jeremy Hefner a five-run first inning and cruised to a 9-4 victory over the Yankees at Yankee Stadium. The victory gave the Mets a season-high four-game winning streak. HEFNER: Finally gets victory. ON THE MOUND: In winning...

The 2013 Mets And The Mistrust Of Good News

The Mets have had a heck of a week so far. After dropping five straight at home to the likes of the Reds and Braves – no shame in that; the rest of the National League has been doing the same – the Mets took the final game against Atlanta, then three straight vs. the Yankees. For anyone who’s followed this team all year long, this is incomprehensible. All year, this has been...

Mets are tops in New York; for tonight at least

The New York Mets overcame a one-run deficit behind the left arm of Jon Niese and the bats of David Wright and Daniel Murphy defeating the New York Yankees, 2-1, taking game one of the 2013 Subway Series. The come-from-behind win marked the tenth such victory of the season for the Mets and their seventh win in their last at-bat.  The clubs last five wins have all been come-from...

The Mets Blueprint To Relevancy And Championship Caliber Baseball

Kevin Kernan of the New York Post, has a must-read post on what the Mets blueprint or “plan” is going forward and unsurprisingly it’s all about the starting pitching. A National League executive told Kernan that “the Mets have the best pitching in the minor leagues bar none. They are really, really deep in starting pitching.” You know all the names: Zack Wheeler, Noah Syndergaard...

NY Mets Take One from the Yankees 2-1

When interleague play first started years back, I was excited to say the least, finally the natural built in rivalies have a chance to mean soomething. The Dodgers/Angels, Cubs/White Sox, Giants/A’s, Cardinals/Royals and, most importantly, the Yankees/Mets. When the Yankees and Mets play, there is usually a buzz leading up to and during the Subway series. This time not so much...
