I notice I'm a popular pick for "Key Met." Well with my Tidewater homey and my healthy hammy (to say nothing of the shoulder), I like to think I'm your man.

Easier access to right-center field makes me happier too. I'm just all about the optimism for 2015. What do you think goes down?

I think Wright's back. He sez he's back and Wright cannot tell a lie. All-star.

If he stays healthy.
I'm working up a way we can track David through the course of the season.

He looks so happy to be back on the field.

I want to find a reason to be at least measuredly optimistic, so I'll say this: he gets hurt in weird ways all the time, so healthy now means nothing once he trips over his untucked shirt while leaving a restaurant or gets Vince Colemaned under a gigantic thing of bubble wrap (ironically meant to PROTECT HIM).

But, yeah, I think he'll do quite well while he's out there. He looks so, so great right now.

I'll sign up for that. But ditto on the creepy feeling that he'll get hurt somehow, not on a freaky thing but in the act of being a third baseman.
Let me tell you something: I have a big set of balls.

I think he's more likely to hurt himself in the act of being David Wright. By which I mean he'll pull something going out there when something is barking and he should be taking a day, because he's got to be there for his team and such.

It's happened before, certainly.

Can't help to recall that backhanded twist and tag on Carlos Lee a couple seasons back. It turned out after a couple of months he had a broken back.

I believe that someday I will punch that arrogant foreman at the plant square on his fat nose; that I will get in the last word with my wife; that I will win the Irish sweepstakes; that the Mets will start a winning streak.
