It All Hinges On Granderson and Wright

Gary Cohen brought up an interesting and sensitive point during Friday night’s broadcast, asking Ron Darling if he thought Curtis Granderson and David Wright would rebound next year. It was a lively conversation that I thought would be worth discussing on MMO so I went ahead and transcribed it. Gary Cohen: Granderson missed most of last year and hasn’t had a great year. But I...

New York Mets: remembering the September 2001 home run

This isn’t going to be a typical article. I’m not going to talk about what’s currently going on with the New York Mets, even if they have won 6 of 8 and four of the last five. Because despite those aforementioned numbers, it isn’t fun for any of us to discuss the scraping and clawing that this team needs to do just to reach .500 or hold off the last place Phillies. Instead...

Don’t Buy Into Thinking Wright Injury Could Pave Way For Murphy Trade

My first question stemming from the Mets’ shutting down David Wright for the remainder of the season is: What took them so long, especially considering his propensity for playing through pain and injury? Seriously, Wright has had a sore left shoulder for weeks. He’s played through worse. Last night, Sandy Alderson said Wright “did what captains do,’’ and he “preserved...

David Wright Finally Coming Around With Bat

“It’s nice to feel dangerous at the plate” (Marc Carig, Newsday). David Wright expressed that very simple sentiment after Tuesday nights win over the Marlins. For Mets fans, it was as big a relief as it was for Wright. There’s no question that Wright is trying to breakout from the worst slump of his career. Last night, Wright recorded his first extra base hit since August...

Wright’s All Wrong and Everybody Knows It

A month ago I took some flack when I suggested it was high time for the Mets to get David Wright out of the number three spot because he was suffocating the offense and desperately needed to work things out with his his swing and his mental approach in a less critical spot in the batting order. Back then I worked up a chart illustrating just how poorly he was doing compared to...

David Wright should be benched for his own good

Every so often a team is on the verge of competing, but needs a big bat to push them over the edge. In 2014, the Mets are that team, but when the trading deadline came and went at the end of July, no moves were made. That’s because the Mets already have that big bat in David Wright. They are just waiting for him to be David Wright. 2014 hasn’t been overly kind to Wright who’s...
