Is David Wright Done? Of Course Not!

Is David Wright in the decline? Is this the end of David Wright? Is David Wright washed up? Calm Down. While it’s obvious that Wright has been struggling mightily in recent weeks, his power has been sapped and he’s having the worst season of his MLB career, I’m chalking this up to injury. He has always been a gamer who never asks out of the lineup due to injury and has refused...

Will 2015 Be A Repeat Of 2014 For Mets?

Adam Rubin of ESPN New York, raised a very interesting question in his column over the weekend. Will the 2015 Mets really be any better than the 2014 Mets? The obvious things to remember are that Matt Harvey will return, likely taking the mound on opening day to a huge, energized crowd. Bobby Parnell will also be back, teaming with a now established bullpen. The pieces that seem...

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.

New York Mets offense sets records in futility

The New York Mets are headed on the road after a very disappointing home stand. They were swept in three games by the Washington Nationals and split a 4 game series with the Chicago Cubs. To make matters worse, the Mets matched their own futile mark-set in 2004- of going five consecutive games with four or fewer hits. This futility is not a new development. Ever since the the All...

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...
