Ahhh nothing like your 3rd baseman striking out with runners on. Or striking out with no one on. Mr Wright is in another one of his so called slumps. The Mets 3rd baseman is rocking a .130 average in the last week with 3 hits in 23 at bats and 7 strikeouts and 1 Rbi. Very nice. With his stellar 0-4 performance yesterday he is hitting .244.
What he do last night? A walk ...woohoo. I of course have too much patience with this guy. Why ? Because he is homegrown star is the main reason and its just great to watch one of your own excel like Straw and Doc did before they got too big for themselves.
The issue I have lately is there more bad David Wright then good David Wright. There is no more consistency with him. He has 2-3 games where he is great and then of course he goes and strikes out with men on. It is painful to watch him up at the plate when 9 times out of 10 I am like oh I wish Bay or Barajas or Pagan were up in this situation. I dont care if he hits the ball out of the park just get some meaningful hits even if you have to drive it in the right field corner. It is about time you win a game for your team David.
His Partner in crime seem to have turn the corner in the last week. Reyes is hitting .500!!! Can we turn the corner with Wright and his beaning or whatever it is. We need this guy to play with himself and get some key hits and waddle around the bases. Enough is Enough
Kudos for Ike Davis for a nice 3 run homer. Nice to finally see the rookie get some Rbi's in the cleanup spot. He seem to be missing many a fastball that would be just popped up. He credits Manager Jerry with help correcting a flaw in his swing.
