Friday night was the first occurance of what I'd like to call the "Wright Seat Effect." I was at Jimmy's Corner in midtown Manhattan watching the Mets take on the Marlins, and I had to leave aat 8:40 to be at Town Hall by 8:45. But when I realized that David Wright would be coming up in the bottom half of the inning, I had to text my friend Moria and say I would be late. I had a gut feeling David Wright was due for a homer--and sure enough he was. Fans chanting "MVP, MVP, MVP" was a little too early, but who knows if the Mets keep winning.
Yesterday's rainout pushed back Victor Zambrano's first start of the season, which might mean he'll make his first start on the road. And that is a very good idea.
