David Wright is About to Get Red Hot

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.
