David Wright Is Not Having Fun
The Daily News writes about the mounting frustration for David Wright, a frustration that reached a new low last night after striking out four times.
David Wright’s whiff-a-thon Wednesday night – he struck out four times against the Rockies – elicited boos from Citi Field fans who usually adore him. Wednesday night’s “Golden Sombrero,” the baseball term for four strikeouts in a single game, was Wright’s second of the season and fourth of his career.
He is 2-for-33 (.061) during August and has hit only .196 in the 24 games since the All-Star break. “I’m not having much fun right now,” Wright said.
While Wright hasn’t heard the kind of boos other Mets have heard in their careers, he said, “I’ve heard enough of it to know when it happens. They (fans) are obviously frustrated, just as we are. They buy their tickets and if they want to boo, they can boo.
”I’m going to do everything I can to help this team win, but the fans can certainly voice their opinion.”
It’s certainly nice to know that Wright is going to do whatever he can to help this team win, but lately he’s being out-produced by Jeff Francoeur who has driven in the winning run in three of the last four Mets wins, a nice feat considering he’s only playe in five games in that span.
Wright is back to chasing balls out of the strike zone and has been late swinging at many fastballs.
Here’s the think about Wright this season, he’s either had stretches in which he was scorching hot, or absolutely horrid. He’s gone from being a consistent hitter into a notorious streak hitter. Still, he’s currently the team’s best hitter with Angel Pagan a very close second.
