Kevin here with an update:
David Wright might as well go up to the plate wearing a blindfold. Because right now, he is completely lost up there.
Through his first two at-bats tonight, both strikeouts, Wright is 0 for his last 14 with eight Ks. Yes, eight!
Wright is swinging at everything close and missing by a lot. As I said before, there’s no reason to panic. It’s just a slump. But this is a bad one.
The amazing thing to me was how everyone lauded Wright duing his club-record 26-game hitting streak to open the season Ã¢â‚¬â€ even though he wasn’t really even hitting that well. He wasn’t driving the ball with the same force he did all last season yet some. I kind of saw this coming.
Anyway, the Mets are up 3-0 on a mammoth home run by Jose Valentin. They announced it as 395 feet but I think it had to be further than that. It went over the bullpen in right.
Check back later.
