    New York Mets v Philadelphia Phillies

    Mets 8, Phillies 0: Matt Harvey blanks the Phillies on two hits for six innings and David Wright went 4 for 5 with two doubles, a triple and a homer. I know the Mets have problems, but man, when it goes right for them it’s really pretty. Something about the purity of an ace and…

    New York Mets v Atlanta Braves

    Mets 4, Braves 3: Good news: two solo homers for David Wright and five scoreless innings from the bullpen. Bad news: The reason the pen was needed for five innings is that Jon Neise had to leave the game with shoulder problems. Braves news: ugh, you guys have looked positively crappy of late. Tigers 4,…

  3. Two words for you: mini bar

    Jun 17, 2013, 5:42 PM EDT

    Mini Bar

    USA Today talked with Bronson Arroyo, David Freese, C.J. Wilson and David Wright about their travel preferences. Here’s the short version: The longer version: food is important. First thing they check when they check in to a hotel? Room service hours and if breakfast is still being served. And they all like that minibar: Arroyo, Freese and Wright unite over…

    Yadier Molina and Buster Posey are neck-and-neck tatto. David Wright is getting help from the cougars! Did Domonoic Brown do something awful to the pets of every All-Star voter? Confused? You won’t be, after this week’s episode of … “SOAP!” Er, sorry. After this week’s NL All-Star voting update: FIRST BASE Joey Votto, Reds 2,047,945…

    Jun 16, 2013, 11:15 PM EDT

    Chicago Cubs v. New York Mets

    Though they came back in grand fashion against Cubs reliever Carlos Marmol, the Mets had staked the Cubs to a 3-0 lead in the fifth after a litany of errors reminiscent of a Little League game. With runners on first and second and two outs in the top of the fifth against Mets starter Jeremy…

  6. David Wright: “It’s not fun to come to the park and lose”

    Jun 15, 2013, 8:25 PM EDT

    David Wright

    Though they can proudly say they aren’t as bad as the Marlins, not much has gone right in Queens for the Mets. First baseman Ike Davis has been a disaster. Shortstop Ruben Tejada hasn’t hit. They lack a real center fielder. The rotation after Matt Harvey has been a mess. After their latest loss to…

    Detroit Tigers v Kansas City Royals

    Royals 3, Tigers 2: Jose Valverde was handed a 2-0 lead in the ninth with a runner on and promptly coughed it up by surrendering a homer to Lorenzo Cain. Phil Coke added his own brand of kerosene to the fire on the 10th as Eric Hosmer singled in the winning run. After the game…

    home run derby

    Major League Baseball is doing that thing again where they pick an American League and National League captain for the Home Run Derby and then let those captains round up a team of competitors. That system got Robinson Cano booed last year in Kansas City because he did not select host city favorite Billy Butler…

    May 28, 2013, 11:53 PM EDT

    Mariano Rivera

    After 626 saves in 19 seasons, Mariano Rivera doesn’t have many firsts left. The Mets, however, tagged him with an unfortunate one Tuesday, collecting three straight hits off him in the ninth to overcome a 1-0 deficit and beat the Yankees 2-1. It was the first time Rivera had ever taken a blown save or…

    May 22, 2013, 11:42 PM EDT

    Justin Upton

    OK, so there hasn’t been any actual All-Star ballot results released yet. That doesn’t mean I can’t do my fun little exercise here. What follows is my best guess at the All-Star Game starting lineups. National League CF Andrew McCutchen 2B Brandon Phillips 1B Joey Votto LF Justin Upton RF Bryce Harper 3B David Wright…

    Detroit Tigers' Verlander reacts after leaving the game against Texas Rangers in their MLB American League baseball game in Arlington

    Rangers 10, Tigers 4: So much for pitching porn. Darvish wasn’t exactly sharp early but he ultimately settled down. Meanwhile, who put the benzedrine in Mr. Verlander’s Ovaltine? He was a hot mess. And I do mean hot. He was lighting up the radar gun in the early innings but was overthrowing and seemed to…

    Royals Braves Basaeball

    Braves 6, Royals 3: I suppose the Braves will lose again at some point. I just don’t know when that point is. The team has 25 homers in 13 games. Yankees 4, Diamondbacks 2: I wasn’t watching this, but as I was going to bed people on Twitter were noting that Mariano Rivera was coming…

    David Wright AP

    Finally some good news for the Mets. Back when David Wright suffered an intercostal strain during the World Baseball Classic his status for Opening Day was very much in doubt, but he’s recovered quickly enough to be in the Game 1 lineup. Wright had six plate appearances and played five innings defensively at third base…

    The Mets won’t have Justin Turner for their opener. According to ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin, the infielder was diagnosed with a left calf strain after making an early exit from Wednesday evening’s Grapefruit League game against the Astros. Calf strains usually come with varying recovery timetables, but it’s a near-certainty that he will miss…

    David Wright AP

    We already knew this was coming at some point, but the Mets made it official this afternoon.

    david wright getty

    David Wright has been shut down with an intercostal strain and was expected to miss several weeks, including Opening Day.

    Mar 17, 2013, 7:34 PM EDT

    David Wright

    Opening Day for the Mets could be very uninspiring.
