David Wright played a baseball game, survived

David Wright

David Wright made his spring debut today against the Cardinals and it went OK. More than OK, actually, as Adam Rubin reports  — and the picture to the right shows — he made a spectacular diving stop on a Rafael Furcal shot down the third base line, throwing the speedy Furcal out.

Wright said he felt good too:

“You can do all the conditioning and working out that you want, but, then, playing in a game is different. When you have to get up, get down, get up, get down, trying to prepare for your at-bats the way you do, it’s a little different. So I’m sure I’ll be a little sore tomorrow.”

Wright played, Johan Santana pitched — five innings of work, striking out five, walking three and giving up two runs on four hits — and for a day at least, things had to feel good in MetsLand.

    Players played baseball without injury. This is what qualifies as good news for the Mets. Sad.

    My Spider Sense says that this, too is good news, Mets Edition. Way to go, Mr. Wright. Now please go Mr.Wilpon.

      Hey, great article by Simers…but isn’t this just a rehash of this:

      ???

      In fact the whole Simer’s piece seems like little more than a summation of the Henson article on Yahoo and its months late, to boot.

      The story is good, the article not so much. Why are you stalking Craig with that article btw?
