The Mets won the battle of long-haired aces last night down in Chavez Ravine, as Jacob deGrom calmly struck out 13 Dodgers and allowed a mere five hits. David Wright’s seventh inning, two-run single put the Mets beyond reach and New York has a chance to go back home with a 2-0 lead.
Mets third baseman and lunch policeman David Wright was fired up after tying the game with an RBI single in the seventh inning of Wednesday night’s game. This was right after Freddie Freeman gave the Braves a 3-2 lead in the top half of the inning with his pinch-hit two-RBI double. When Wright reached first base, he…
We’re used to writing about the Mets for other reasons around here, so please forgive me if I make any mistakes while trying to play this one straight, but the Mets offense absolutely went bonkers Monday night, and it increasingly looks like they are going to skate right into the playoffs.
Deadspin readers have overwhelmingly demanded to know what it would look like if various major leaguers had pitcher Aaron Harang’s distinctive eyes. In the interest of service to you, the reader, we present various major leaguers with Aaron Harang’s distinctive eyes.
Mets pitcher Noah Syndergaard chose to eat lunch in the clubhouse today during the team's scrimmage. Big mistake. David Wright and Bobby Parnell found out, and threw Syndergaard's lunch in the trash to teach him a lesson.
It is very unlikely that you weren't at least peripherally aware of MLB Network's irritating, interminable, "Face of MLB" contest, a bracket-style competition where fans voted on Twitter for a meaningless award. David Wright was announced as the winner this morning, but not after some curious voting irregularities.
League captains David Wright and Robinson Cano have selected their squads for the Home Run Derby, and they're enough to guarantee that once again, the derby will be more watchable than the All-Star Game itself.
When the first vote totals for the MLB All-Star Game were released last week, David Wright was in second. A desperate Mets marketing department didn't want Wright to lose to Pablo Sandoval for the second year in a row, especially not with the game being held at Citi Field. So one employee decided to turn to an…
Last night, the U.S. played its first game in this year's World Baseball Classic, and we learned a number of things: 1. America's official language is English, 2. The best the U.S. can do for an ace in an international competition is a kuckle-balling 38-year old, and 3. "With people on the pads, Luis Cruz drove the…
Remember in 2009 when Avatar made, like, $760 billion, and you were all like, "Holy shit, Avatar just made the most money of all time!" And then your dick movie-geek friend told you that, adjusted for inflation, Avatar was actually just the 14th-highest grossing movie of all time? And the highest was actually almost…
At around 2 a.m. this morning, Ed Coleman of WFAN in New York reported that the Mets and superstar third baseman David Wright had agreed to a contract extension that will likely keep him in Queens for the remainder of his career. The deal is presumed to be for seven years and around $140 million, which would be north…
A very charitable call from the FOX crew. "No harm, no foul," they say. "Not sure that David Wright had a play at first, anyway," they say. "He was trying to hold up," they say. Mets fans? Less charitable.
Every morning, the fine folks at Sports Radio Interviews sift through the a.m. drive-time chatter to bring you the best interviews with coaches, players, and personalities across the sports landscape. Today: Wright remembers that you can't be an underdog without having zero expectations.
Today, we give thanks to baseball for being back and to the New York Post for bringing our attention to this photo of Alex Rodriguez clutching a bundle of kale. The Post ran a story, adapted from a book called Diamond Dishes, about "the secret recipes that fuel" baseball's biggest stars. Among them: A-Rod's recipe for…
We're finding it hard not to sympathize with the guy on this one, because we've never caught a ball of our own. Still, we're always up for a public shaming.
Big helmet or tiny head? Francisco Cervelli fans (hey, he has some!) have been wondering that for a few weeks now, but in the coming years an entire corps of MLB players may look like futuristic, yet dorky space travelers.
