David Freakin Wright

  • David Wright apparently does not care where he is. He just hits. He went 3 for 4 with a double, one walk and no K's. At this point he is batting a meaty .750. Sure it is one game, but who cares.

    John Sickels was showing David Wright some love.

    From Baseball Prospectus:

    Rolen Along: Oops, did we just say that? The comparison is premature, but we're just telling you what we hear. David Wright leads the Eastern League with a .370 EqA (Equivalent Average), which translates to a very strong .287 major league EqA. (Ty Wigginton's is .275.) Depending on how Wright and the Mets are doing in September, there's a chance we'll see him at Shea before the year is out.
    You'd have to think that even the Carlos Beltran Sweepstakes couldn't pry Wright away from the Mets. If the Mets go after Beltran--and GM Jim Duquette has spoken to Royals GM Allard Baird more than once--they may look to include Scott Kazmir or even Jose Reyes. Giving away either of those blue-chippers for a few months of Beltran seemed unthinkable on Opening Day, but the NL East has turned out to be wide open, and the Mets may feel they have a chance.

    Could the Mets get Beltran without giving up any of their top-shelf talent? If they are still within striking distance next month, and Beltran is still up for grabs, we'll take a closer look at what they might have to offer. For now, rumors are just rumors.


    Am I still the only one who thinks Reyes is untouchable? Am I such an eternal optimist that I cannot see he is damaged goods? Look, guys that run the way he does sometimes have hamstring problems. Vince Coleman did, but he was eventually cured. The kid is 21 and has superstar written all over him.

  • Good to see Duquette has his head on straight.

    "It's hard," Duquette said. "When you stay in the race like this, your first instinct is to make a trade and improve the team no matter what the cost is. You have to catch yourself and remind yourself you want to do it the right way and stay in this thing for the long haul."

  • The Pistons will try to end the NBA Finals by beating the Lakers. With Shaq and Kobe fighting like a married couple, Malone playing on one leg, and Payton pouting like a little girl, is anyone actually hoping the win?

    On a side note, I have a friend that like the Lakers as his favorite basketball team and the Yankees as his favorite baseball team. How terrible is that? I'm suprised people like to hang around with him.

  • Jim Thome hit his 400th homerun on Monday. Is he a hall of famer? He has certainly put up some monster years and will finish his career with well over 500 homeruns. However, I just do not put him in a Piazza or Mays category. 500 homeruns just does not mean what it used to be, it is no longer an automatic ticket to Cooperstown. I just do not associate Jim Thome with being a legend.

  • I usually do not like John Kruk, but I like this rant on the draft.

  • Mike Sweeney on the block? Apparently once thought untouchable, that may not be the case. He has a limited no trade clause which allows him to pick eight teams he can be dealt to each year. The teams are Seattle (will not be dealing for him), Arizona (will not be dealing for him), San Francisco, San Diego, Anaheim, Oakland, and Los Angeles. I guess he has at thing for the West. Does he know the BBQ out there is not as good as Kansas City? I mean, no one really likes tofu BBQ, do they? Being that he has a few years left, he may actually bring back more than Beltran if he happens to be dealt.
