Things David Wright Should Change And One Thing He Should Not

Every athlete knows that when things aren't going right (er Wright?) something has to be changed to get your mojo set in the right direction. David Wright, I'm begging you to change something, anything even, and here are some suggestions for you to consider:
  1. Lose the Livestrong bracelet: I just started noticing that you're wearing the yellow band over the past few weeks. It ain't helpin'.
  2. Shave your head: You did it last year and you were the only guy hitting in September
  3. Dump your girlfriend: Whoever she is she's weighing you down
  4. Get a girlfriend: Out with the old, in with the new
  5. Go see Carlos Delgado's doctor: It's obvious he's a miracle worker
  6. Ditch the uppercut swing: You're an opposite field power machine!
  7. Change your intro music: I'm thinking "Right Stuff" by NKOTB? What, aren't they retro now?
And with all that change, there's one thing you shouldn't change, Mr. Wright. Whatever it is you are doing to hone your fielding skills, keep it up. David Wright is absolutely earning his gold glove this year. For all the problems he's had at the plate lately, he's been the exact opposite on the field. I can't remember the last time he made an offline toss to first where Delgado came off the bag to tag the runner. We would see one of those throws at least twice a week in April and May.

Wright has to get his act together at the plate especially with runners in scoring position. It might very well be the key to the pennant.
