Mets Merized Online:
New York Mets
The MetsMerizedOnline Player of the Week for this week has shown he has a great impact on this team. This week also includes the opening series against the Atlanta Braves, for a total of 9 games played. Here is our MMO Player of the Week for 4/5/2012-4/15/2012:
Through the use of the scorecard, let’s take a look at how David Wright did this week:
Despite missing three games due to a pinkie injury, Wright still had two home runs, five runs batted in, and a .571 batting average. During those three games he missed, his impact was noticed, as the Mets went 1-2 without him, while going 5-1 with him. This is the David Wright that we all want playing out there, week in and week out.
These players, although not winning the Player of the Week award, had a very strong showing this week and deserve to be recognized. We will also show how strong a showing they had t...
BEST OF MAXIM
Photo By Michael BaronWhen I heard the news that David Wright could play as tolerable, to be honest I was relieved that it wasn't that serious and really didn't think much more about it. Then when Friday came around, after a day off, Wright was not in the line-up and talking about how his pinkie was too swollen to swing a bat or throw the ball, I began to think maybe they...
According to multiple sources, including ESPN, SNY and most importantly the Mets themselves, David Wright will play today and apparently avoid a trip to the disabled list due to his recently broken right pinky finger.
David Wright took some nice swings in the batting cage today and afterward the Mets announced he would play today and be in today’s lineup, and batting third.

David Wright is off to a sensational start and played a big role in the New York Mets' season-opening three-game sweep of the Atlanta Braves.
His fast start, however, could come to a halt with a trip to Atlanta.
Wright hopes to put an end to his struggles at Turner Field on Monday night when the Mets open a three-game set against a Braves team seeking its sixth straight win...
David Wright was back in the New York Mets lineup after missing
three games with a broken right pinkie.
The Mets clinched a series win this afternoon in Philadelphia by shutting out the Phillies by a score of 5-0.
Jonathan Niese was on the hill today, and he pitched brilliantly, tossing 6.2 innings of shutout baseball, allowing only 5 hits while walking 1 and striking out 5 Phillies.
David Wright returned from injury today, and hit the first pitch he saw to the deepest part of the...
The Phils are shutdown offensively by Mets’ pitching as they lose to the Mets, 5-0.
The Mets take a quick 1-0 lead as, with two men out, David Wright hits a solo home run, his second home run of the year. The Mets added to their lead in the fourth as, with the bases loaded, via a walk to Daniel Murphy, a single by Wright, with Murphy stopping at second base, and a single by Ike...
Lucas Duda, David Wright and Ike Davis will (hopefully) provide the power for the Mets lineup in 2012
In an offseason to forget, the New York Mets slashed payroll, begged people to come to Citi Field, lost Gary Carter to cancer, lost their best player to a division rival in free agency and settled a massive lawsuit. Other than that, the Mets 2012 offseason was pretty boring.
While others would have preferred that we focus on a Wilpon/Picard trial to get our Mets fill this season, I spent the better part of the offseason trying to keep your eyes in between the foul lines because it felt right, but also because it looked like something special was beginning to brew.
In January I said, “If Johan Santana pitches reasonably well and gives us 20 starts...
The Vanimal allowed the Mets to score early today. Photo: APThe Metropolitans got to the Vanimal early, plating four runs in the first four innings on two home runs en route to blanking the Phils 5-0. David Wright hit a first inning bomb to straight away center on the first pitch he saw from Worley answering any questions about the health of his pinky. Lucas Duda added a two run...
Jonathon Niese and two relievers combined on a six-hitter, David Wright homered despite a broken finger and the New York Mets beat the Philadelphia Phillies 5-0 on Saturday.

Wright was 3 for 5, including a long homer on the first pitch he saw after missing...

The Mets had a pretty successful opening weekend in Philadelphia, beating the Phillies in two out of three games. After nine games, all within the Eastern Division of the National League, the Mets find themselves at 6-3. Not too bad at all. So here are the 3 and 3 from this weekend.
