Mets Finish 2014 With Next Year Looking Bright

A sign spotted in the bleachers pretty much said it all about the day and the season: “We Believe in 2015.’’ For the first time in six years, there’s a legitimate reason to believe the interlocking NY on the Mets’ cap does mean next year. Seriously, without Matt Harvey, David Wright ailing and missing and questions in their rotation and bullpen, the Mets finished in second...

New York Mets: injuries still mounting

Someone needs to let the New York Mets’ players bodies that the season is over. There are all of two games left as of Friday night but that hasn’t stopped key players from going down left and right. The list, at this point, is pretty extensive. David Wright headlines the list that also includes Travis d’Arnaud, Vic Black, Jacob deGrom, Juan Lagares, Dilson Herrera and as of...

Wright Reveals Extent Of Damage To Shoulder

Mets third baseman David Wright came clean on Wednesday, telling Adam Rubin of ESPN New York that his persistence in playing with an injured shoulder may caused much more damage than what has been reported. “When I got hurt, the ligaments and the cuff and everything else that holds my shoulder in place were damaged and stretched out,” he said. “And therefore my shoulder –...

New York Mets’ playoff drought up to 8 seasons

Friday, September 19, 2014. The last day of relevance of the New York Mets’ season. The Pittsburgh Pirates beat the Milwaukee Brewers to officially eliminate the Mets from Wild Card contention. With the Nationals clinching the National League East earlier in the week, the Mets are playing the rest of the way for pride and the slim chance to achieve a .500 record. It would take...

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...

New York Mets: David Wright out for season

The New York Mets have announced on Tuesday that captain David Wright will be shut down for the remainder of the season. Wright has been dealing with shoulder soreness for much of the season, which has likely had an impact on his production. Wright was held out of Tuesday’s game for more tests which revealed inflammation in his left rotator cuff. Surgery is not needed at this point...

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...
