Last week’s question was: Should Major League Baseball require players to wear a new, better-padded helmet, even if it means making it more uncomfortable for the batter?
Yes, everything should be done to protect the batter. — 57%
No, MLB should make the helmets comfortable and protective at the same time. — 35 %
No, the helmets are fine the way they are. — 3 %
No, getting hit is all part of the game and players know that. — 5%
The majority of you were thinking about the safety of the batter. Since David Wright’s beaning, there hasn’t been as many incidents of hit batters, allowing the controversy to die down.
There’s nothing like an unassisted triple play to get the Mets right back in the baseball spotlight, even though they are out of contention for the post season. In addition to that, Mets injuries keep piling up, making the team the equivalent of the walking dead. Both Jeff Francoeur and Johan Santana have revealed injuries, though neither is yet on the disabled list. It’s just a matter of time, though.
This week’s poll question is: Which Met, who hasn’t yet been on the disabled list this season, will make a trip there next?
