Vinny from the Spankees, Mets & the Rest reported some news that made my frickin' day. David Wright heading home to play for AAA Norfolk. In lesser, but also good news, Prentice Redman was called up! Hopefully we will see Wright at Shea sooner rather than later if he continues to tear pitchers up. Not because he will be our savior, but because we may want to think about getting him some major league playing time, so he will be ready for 2005 with a few months of major league experience under his belt. On top of that, the hot Wigginton will become trade bait which will then allow the Mets to strengthen the team in other areas. I think David is ready right now. Afterall, he did have few at-bats in the major league camp and batted .353. It was a small sample size, but he performed nonetheless while making some spectacular plays in the field.
Vinny also has some good insight and comments on Cameron, check them out.
Let's hope Tommy can salvage the week and try and prevent two consecutive sweeps. One of which would be handed to us by one of the worst teams in baseball. We will have quite a challenge in Zack Grienke today. If we could not hit bad pitchers, I can only imagine how we will handle a good one. Scary to think.
