The Daily Stache:
After back to back miserable losses, the Mets will take the field to conclude their 2 game series against the Cincinnati Reds. On Tuesday, the Mets were blown out by the Brewers by a score of 8-0 which included a minor controversy with Terry Collins pulling David Wright. The next night, the Mets had a lead entering the 8th inning which was blown by D.J. Carrasco who would be Designated for Assignment after the game.
Today’s matchup features Mat Latos (2-2 4.54 ERA) vs. R.A. Dickey (5-1 3.65 ERA). Latos was acquired in the offseason by the Reds from San Diego in a deal that sent Edinson Volquez and Yonder Alonso to the Padres. Dickey’s last start was in Miami when he went 6 innings allowing just 2 runs and recording his 5th win of the season
1) Andres Torres-CF
2) Kirk Nieuwenhuis-LF
3) David Wright-3B
4) Lucas Duda-RF
5) Daniel Murphy-2B
6) Ike Davis-1B
7) Ronny Cedeno-SS
9) R.A. Dickey-P
One key is to see whether or not Ike can get himself going at home. Ike is hitting just .067 at home with just 4 hits. Ike hit his 4th hit at home last night with a late inning double. Ike is 0-2 in his career against Mat Latos

In a stunning development, Terry Collins stated he feels so strongly about his decision to remove David Wright from last nights game, he is considering benching Wright for the season.

For years, Jose Reyes would be considered the “spark plug” of the Mets; the man to light up the basepaths, and the dugout. Now with Reyes trying to find his spark in Miami, the Mets were supposed to be lacking such a catalyst both on and off the field come 2012. Turns out, the true spark of this franchise was just waiting to catch fire all along. His name: David Wright.
METS COME BACK FROM 4-0 AND POUND THE REDS 9 - 4
David Wright is on fire.
David Wright once again is clutch and delivers the go ahead run in what became a late inning slug fest for New York.Many of us, The Blob included, have wondered over the past few season if we'd ever see David return to being the great player we once knew. Not only has the old David come back to us, but he seems to

Terry Collins is learning how to manage David Wright's work ethic and sense of accountability.
For the second time this season, Collins made a decision meant to make sure the Mets' best player stays healthy and productive, even if Wright objected. After a Mets reliever hit Milwaukee's best player, Ryan Braun, with a pitch, Wright wanted to make sure that he was the one...

NEW YORK -- New York Mets manager Terry Collins had zero interest in allowing his best player to risk injury during a rout and no problem explaining the reason. Third baseman David Wright -- the player Collins removed to avoid possible retaliation from the Milwaukee Brewers after their star, Ryan Braun, was hit by a pitch -- initially had a little tougher time accepting Collins...
It was looking to be one of those days, with the Mets suffering from a four-run deficit in a scoreless effort through four and a half innings. R.A. Dickey was pitching just all right and Joey Votto dampened the Mets’ spirits with his sixth home run of the year in the fourth.
But all in all, everything looked this afternoon at Citi when it was all said and done. The Mets split...
