While reading a recap of yesterday’s game from Associated Press, I read something that caught me completely by surprise. Apparently, after the game Ian Snell spoke with reporters and pretty much accused Wright of somehow stealing signs. Here is the way AP tells it, “They hit some good pitches.

I was thinking last night as the Mets had a comfortable three-run lead, that maybe, just maybe they have turned a corner and that I can write something positive today.
