The last time David Wright tasted champagne with the Mets, he thought it was something he would grow accustomed to, like annual All-Star Games and feeling healthy. As a young star on a powerhouse team in New York, he thought he could duplicate what Derek Jeter had done with the Yankees. It couldn’t be that hard, could it?

Does David Wright play tight when the heat’s on?

The Mets are taking slow, inexorable steps towards their first division title in nine years. By the calculations over here, they should clinch sometime in the September 30/October 1 area.

Mets Minors: Eudor Garcia looking to become the heir to David Wright

Back in 2014, the Mets selected Eudor Garcia in the fourth round of the draft.  Garcia profiled as a first round talent but had flaws that held him from being drafted earlier.  Garcia’s biggest flaw is that he’s 5’11” and 225 Lbs.  He’s not a lithe and graceful infielder nor is he a giant powerful behemoth.  With his body profile the consensus opinion has Garcia shifting...
