David Wright is going to knock the cover off the ball the rest of the way. If his first two games are an indication It’s going to be a fun second half of baseball for The Mets.
I like how he was swinging the bat. Both doubles Friday were hit hard to right field and he looked like the David Wright of past. last night again his swing was good. It was so nice seeing him at 3rd.
I don't think The Mets are done yet. This is the healthiest they have been since the start of the season. I say that with Jason Bay missing game 5 since he strained his hamstring last week. Bay has been a non factor all season. He has missed games before and his absents affect on The Mets is miniscule. Pridie, Harris and Hairston have all contributed in Bay's absence. Pridie had a very nice running catch on the last play of the game, snagging what could have been the game tying hit. The left fielder by committee has been much more productive offensively than Bay all season. I do not think the Mets can keep Bay out much longer without putting him on the Disabled List. Bay needs some time off from the team.
The Phillies and the Braves have not had a slump yet. Braves are without Chipper next month. Phillies have lost Oswald. Both teams have some fragile players. Look for the Mets to make a steady run. Come August 30, Citi Field will be rocking and by hook or by crook I am going to be there.
