David Wright Gets It

It was a simple gesture, but further proof David Wright gets it. The son of a policeman, Wright knew what Jaden and Justin Ramos – the sons of slain NYPD police officer Rafael Ramos – would be feeling Christmas Eve. So, he called to invite them to spring training and to hang with the Mets this summer at Citi Field. A police source told The Daily News: “You should have seen...

Mets star David Wright reaches out to sons of slain NYPD officer

David Wright's awesome offer to sons of slain NYPD officer

David Wright knows all too well the anxiety that comes with being a police officer's son. The New York Mets third baseman is the son of a former Virginia policeman, and the tragic killing of two NYPD officers in Brooklyn last Saturday hit closer to home than most.  Officer Rafael Ramos left behind sons Justin, 19, and Jaden, 13, when he was killed along with Officer Wenjian...

New York Mets Christmas wish list

Dear New York Mets, I always ask for very little when it comes to Christmas gifts.  In the banner year of ’07, I got an Xbox 360 and a snowboard.  That same winter, I was getting geared up for what I thought was going to be another brilliant season from my New York Mets.  I was still hungover from 2006, when you guys were one swing away from the World Series (still love you...

The New York Mets Rumors: Troy Tulowitzki Edition

It is no secret that the New York Mets are in need of a shortstop for the 2015 season. The Mets have been searching for a steady shortstop since 2011, when they let Jose Reyes walk. Back then, Sandy Alderson had no interest or capability to match Reyes’ salary requirement. The Mets and Rockies have talked about trading franchise player Troy Tulowitzki, however, there has been plenty...

When the Phillies officially shipped mainstay Jimmy Rollins to the Dodgers on Friday, they ended his hold on MLB’s longest active streak of games played with a single team. In his 15 years with Philadelphia, Rollins played 2,090 games for the Phils, a figure that led all active players for roughly ten weeks following the retirement of Derek Jeter.

David Wright told ESPN New York he has “started to swing a little and the volume should increase soon.” in regards to activity at the plate.  The NY Mets captain and former All-Star third baseman struggled mightily last year due to “stretched out” ligaments in his non-throwing shoulder which ultimately affected his ability to swing a bat.

Featured Post: Can Mets Win With Wright As Their Top Hitter?

I’ve been having this internal debate with myself over the past few months. With so much riding on 2015, the Mets have put a huge burden on several players. While a lot will be expected of the returning Matt Harvey and the elite stable of pitchers that follow him in the rotation, so much more rides on the bats of Curtis Granderson and David Wright. Granderson has morphed into...

Featured Post: Wright Remains Mets’ Most Critical Question

Among the myriad of questions facing the New York Mets headed into next season, I believe the most important is the status of David Wright. A recent ESPN poll listed baseball’s top ten third basemen and Wright, based on his recent injury history and performance, wasn’t on the list and shouldn’t have been. Therein, is why he’s my most critical Mets’ question for 2015. The...
