David Wright: Waiting for September
Interestingly enough, Pedro Martinez made the list of players who underperform in September. Well he's gotten some practice in underperforming in April-August the last few years too.
I hope the back to school season and the change of the calendar helps Mr. Wright get things together. Even though he notched his 100th RBI already, it seems like he's been struggling of late and getting down on himself when he doesn't produce late in games. His defense has really been stellar though.
If the Mets are to keep their lead atop the NL East, they absolutely have to have David Wright at his best to fend off the Phillies. If history is any indicator, Wright is a few days away from an offensive explosion.
