David Wright's 2011 campaign has already seen its fair share of ups and downs, but current signs point to an uptick. Specifically, I am talking about how well he is seeing the ball of late.
Wright has now drawn a walk in 7 consecutive games and raised his OBP from .322 to .347 over that span. In addition to the walks, he stroked seven hits and cut down on his K rate. The downside is that the hits have not come at the most opportune times, and he has not driven in any runs over the last week.
A quick look through Wright's career stats show that this current consecutive games with a walk streak is the longest of his career. The numbers also show that when Wright walks with frequency, the power numbers follow.
History tells us that this will be the case here, and that David will have a monster May.

Jose had every right to go ballistic. Thankfully our man Murph balanced the books and the Mets went on to win in fine fashion.

Hey peeps. Yes, I've been away for a while--I've received a bunch of e-mails and here is the answer why: work. I had a pretty good year, OK, a great year, and managed to get promoted up within my company, and I am just now settling down and back in to some semblance of a social life.
So....anyone else going to the game tonight? I am very pumped up after last night's big win. It will be a treat to go see the Mets and RA Dickey. The team has an excellent chance to extend the winning streak to 6.
The Mets visited Walter Reed Yesterday--I was going to cruise up there and take a look at the proceedings since I have access as a Vet and military retiree, but alas that work thing got in the way. I was just very pleased at how the team went about its business and did what's important.
I know all of you know about the great Joe Petruccio and his website My Mets Journal. Well, none other than little old me was lucky enough to win his latest contest for a free personally drawn and signed piece. In fact, here it is:
So all in all a very good Mets week. Win 5 in a row, guys hitting and pitching well, the team acting as a team, and on a personal note, I will be in some choice seats tonight thanks to Davey Johnson, and I win a piece of beautiful Mets artwork from one of my very favorite artists.
A good morning indeed.
