David Wright was out of the lineup for the third straight game because of a broken right pinkie.
The New York Mets third baseman was cleared to play by a hand specialist Thursday, but Justin Turner was in Wright's No. 3 spot in the lineup and playing third base for Friday night's game against the Phillies.
Wright sat out games Tuesday and Wednesday after learning he broke...
After David Wright went down with a broken pinky on Monday against the Nationals, the Mets lost two games in a row after winning their first four games. They had a much needed day off yesterday to collect themselves and to get some rest. Now the head to Philadelphia to take on the Phillies for a three series. The 3-3 Phillies are a different team this year compared to years past...
Phillies' All Star 2nd Baseman Chase Utley is still in Arizona rehabbing his knees. He will remain there until at least April 23rd.
The Phillies found some offense last night, nearly matching their total run output of their first 4 games with a 7-run outburst. It keyed the Phillies to a 7-1 victory over their division rival Florida Marlins, and improved them to 2-3 on the season...
Final Score: New York 5, Philadelphia 0
Five days after fracturing the pinkie on his right hand, David Wright felt no ill-effects in his return to the Mets' lineup.
The New York third baseman homered in his first at-bat and singled twice as the Mets blanked the Philadelphia Phillies, 5-0, in the middle test of a three-game set at Citizens Bank Park.

The Bisons got corralled Thursday afternoon by a score of 7-2 at the hands of the SWB Yankees in Buffalo. A three-run second off Chris Schwinden, and a three-run seventh off Jeff Stevens would provide the Yankees with all the scoring they would need, and they added a solo homer by Steve Pearce off Daniel Herrera in the fifth.
Schwinden who struggled mightily with...
New Phillies closer, hours before picking up his first career save in Citizens Bank Park as a member of the Phillies (and fifth career save in CBP), Jonathan Papelbon was a guest on MLB Network's Intentional Talk, with Chris Rose and Kevin Millar. As expected, it was Papelbon being Papelbon during the interview segment, so it was an enjoyable segment.
Papelbon talked about his...
Jimmy Rollins defines leadership for the Philadelphia Phillies. Questions for Jimmy: How many singles equal a homerun? 3 or 4? Will small ball be the Titanic for the skipper?

Before Friday’s series opener with the visiting New York Mets, Phillies manager Charlie Manuel talked about the importance of being patient against knuckleballer R.A. Dickey.
Easier said than done when confronted with the floater. The Phillies took their hacks but were thrown off rhythm by the righthander, whose previous history at Citizens Bank Park left much to be desired.
When one of your ace pitchers gives up 3 runs in the first inning, you know it is going to be a bad day. Add to that having the Mets in town, the 3rd anniversary of Harry Kalas’ death and the fact that it is Friday the 13th and things look pretty grimm.
Not that Cliff Lee pitched too badly. He made a few mistakes and the Mets lowered the ax. Making matters worse, the Phillies...
David Wright was back in the New York Mets lineup after missing
three games with a broken right pinkie.
Charlie Manuel will be rolling out the same lineup we saw earlier in the week against Mark Buehrle. This version of his lineup is catered towards facing a lefty starter, which the Phillies will face today when Jon Neise takes the hill.
Vance Worley will get the start for the Phils, and he will be looking for another strong outing to try to knot the series at 1 game a piece with the...
