The Wright and Wrong Report: Forgettable/Unforgettable

Last night's 7-2 loss to the Diamondbacks was forgettable.

Last night's 7-2 loss to the Diamondbacks was unforgettable.

How can both statements be true? Easy.

It was forgettable because David Wright went 0 for 4; Allay Soler pitched like he was possessed by Jose Lima and none of the team's nine hits came in the right situations.

It was unforgettable because Cliff Floyd (2 for 4) continues to put his slump behind him, Jose Valentin (another home run, 2 for 4 as well) is slowly grabbing hold of second base (bye Kaz), Darren Oliver saved the rest of the bullpen by throwing 4 scoreless innings and the minor league phenom Lastings Milledge made his debut as #44 in right field and showed off a rather sweet swing. I never got a chance to see Milledge in spring training (damn cable battles), but I must say he looked much more composed than his 21 years.

Tonight Pedro Martinez vs Brandon Webb. Just one run could win it with these two guys throwing.
