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.
