Wright Hopeful For A Return To His Former Glory

Nice article by Dan Martin of the Post who writes that Mets third baseman David Wright would like to avoid many of the things that happened to him last year, and that the broken back that limited him to 104 games and a .254 average last season, now feels good. “My back feels real good,” Wright […]

The Lion (Picard), The Witch (Wilpon) and the Wardrobe (Mets Blogosphere)

I read an interesting article at Baseball Prospectus by Biz of Baseball’s Maury Brown, who sheds new light on some of  complexities regarding the financial turmoil that has engulfed Mets ownership in the aftermath of the Madoff scandal. Interestingly enough, Brown corroborates some of the things I’ve either speculated here on MMO as well as a few […]

Maybe It Isn’t All Bad…

Despite the Mets lack of big offseason signings, the departure of Jose Reyes and the news that the payroll is being regulated strongly for the first time in years brings most Mets fans into a dark, dreadful place. Talks about boycotting Citi Field, putting an inferior product on the field and expecting the fans to […]

Would You Decline Wright’s Option To Sign Josh Hamilton Next Offseason?

After posing this question via twitter, a debate ensued between myself and several Met bloggers including our own Joe D. and Brandon Butler. I thought I would ask the MMO faithful this same query: Would you do anything to sign Josh Hamilton next winter? Even if it meant losing David Wright? Personally, I think it […]

David Wright’s Trade Value: Perceived vs. Reality

Two weeks ago, if someone had put a gun to my head and asked me if David Wright would still be a Met on Opening Day, without hesitation I would have said yes. Now I’m not so sure. After reading about a Wright trade rumor here on MMO that I initially was skeptical about, I now cannot […]

Wright Staying Put? I Don’t Think So…

Rockies beat reporter Troy E. Renck of the Denver Post, said via Twitter: “My understanding is that the Mets will hold on to David Wright until the Trade Deadline,” I’m not buying it one bit… As I felt and said all through the 2011 season – that the Mets would never re-sign Jose Reyes – I have that same […]

Wright Offers Are Not Very Righteous

Sandy Alderson may not be actively shopping third baseman, but he has gotten at least two offers according to Heyman. Alderson spoke to reporters last night and said, “he did not anticipate trading David Wright this winter”. I’m pretty sure that if one of those offers bowled him offer, Wright would be an ex-Met tonight - rightfully so. With […]

Teams Interested In Daniel Murphy

Joel Sherman of the NY Post tweets that Murphy is getting some attention… I like Murphy as a player, but with David Wright entrenched at third base, Murphy’s natural position, it’s hard to fit him in anywhere else which is a shame because he has an incredible bat. At the time Murphy got hurt and […]

Why Misleading Stats On David Wright Change Everything

Since 2004, David Wright has been a fan favorite.  His name can be found all over the Mets’ all-time offensive leaderboard and he has accomplished this all before his 29th birthday.  Because of this, some Mets fans would find it impossible to see the team without David Wright and would consider it sacrilege to trade […]
