Wright Is On Fire

David Lennon at On The Mets Beat, writes about David Wright and how he's tearing the cover off of the ball in May:

Not sure how many of you out there in Mets Nation were genuinely concerned about David Wright, but it appears that the worry is over regarding the All-Star third baseman. After a dismal April, when Wright batted .244 with zero home runs and only six RBI in 24 games, he's definitely turned the corner. This month, Wright is hitting .327 (18-for-55) with four home runs and 11 RBI in just 13 games. Looks like there's no reason to melt down that wax figure at Madame Tussauds just yet.

"It's all about getting hot at the right time," Wright said after Monday's 3-for-4 night against the Cubs, "and doing your part to help the team win."

Remember, it was Wright who spurred the Mets' new buzzcut craze, and the team has won five of six since losing its hair. As for Wright, he's 10-for-23 with four doubles, two homers and six RBI after letting bullpen catcher -- and close friend -- Dave Racaniello use the electric razor on his head.
