Last night, Mets' third baseman and face of the franchise, David Wright, was cracked in the melon by a wayward Matt Cain fastball. Down he went. Wright, woozy, concussed, eventually rose up from the dirt and was shipped off to the Hospital for Special Surgery for observation. Fun Saturday night.
Thankfully, Wright appears to be okay after the beaning, but the damage to the Mets already fragile psyche is irreparable. Johan Santana is exasperated: "I don't know what else we can go through..."
Perhaps a clubhouse fire? An earthquake in Queens that knocks the Arpielle Equipment Co. scoreboard ads onto centerfield?

Good morning. It's Sunday. Wake and bake.
