DAVID WRIGHT NEWS

Rapid reactions to the 2014 Mets

With another season of Mets baseball now in the books, the time of the year for reflections on the season that was has began.  The team’s 79-83 record, though disappointing, has to be seen as a step forward toward contention, especially when considering the lack of contributions the team saw from David Wright and Matt Harvey. With those two back and theoretically healthy next...

Mets Finish 2014 With Next Year Looking Bright

Seriously, without Matt Harvey, David Wright ailing and missing and questions in their rotation and bullpen, the Mets finished in second...

Everything Hinges On Wright Returning To All Star Form

Kevin Kernan of the New York Post conveys that David Wright is stoked about the direction the Mets are heading and knows the front office must acquire a couple of key pieces this offseason to avoid a seventh straight losing season.

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...

The Obstacle In Trading For Power

It isn’t that Daniel Murphy doesn’t have value to another team in a straight trade; it is he won’t be able to bring back much in return by himself. With the Mets’ greatest need power; Murphy is a line-drive gap hitter with limited power. To acquire a 30-homer bat, the Mets would have to sweeten the pot considerably. That would mean dealing one of their pitchers. The Mets...

Would Moving the Fences In Help Curtis Granderson?

This morning, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reported that the Mets plan to reconfigure the dimensions of Citi Field. By “reconfigure,” it’s likely that Rubin means that the Mets want to bring in the outfield fences. The idea is, make the distance from home to the right-center field gap shorter and you would thereby increase home run potential. The two hitters that would seem...

Mets Expected To Tweak Citi Field Dimensions In Offseason

Adam Rubin is reporting that the Mets are planning to tweak the dimensions of Citi Field in the offseason. While the specifics are not yet known, it is likely that the team will reconfigure parts of right center field to better fit David Wright and Curtis Granderson’s home run strokes. Citi Field went through a major change between the 2011 and 2012 seasons when the entire fence...

What Should the Mets Expect from David Wright Moving Forward?

New York Mets captain David Wright endured his worst professional season in 2015. The 31-year-old slashed a mediocre .269/.324/.374, equating to a league average 101 OPS+. Marred by a shoulder injury he believes contributed poor performance, he hopes to avoid surgery and return healthy in 2015. The seven-time All-Star can no longer be counted on for elite power in the middle of...

What Will The Mets Do This Off-Season?

Well, it looks like another sub-.500 season is close to the end, and we can expect Alderson and Collins back, so it’s time to look at what the off-season might have in store for the Mets. I think we can eliminate “spend big and acquire two or three major stars”, but it’s still somewhat of a mystery what the Amazins will do. Here are a few possibilities.  1. Minor Tinkering...

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...

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...

Nationals-Mets Preview

No David Wright? No problem for the New York Mets. That's likely to change, however, with a four-game set against the NL East-leading Washington Nationals. After winning the first two games without their All-Star third baseman, the Mets now look to end their longest home losing streak to any opponent in Thursday night's opener with the Nationals. New York is 5-7 without Wright...

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...
