Launched in June of 2008, The Wright Stuff is your NUMBER ONE source for all things David Wright, third baseman for the New York Mets.

David Wright will appear on Late Night with David Letterman on Thursday, but not in the same capacity that he has for the last two years.
Instead, David will partake in a Top Ten List that will air in the beginning half of the show.
Also scheduled to present the list are Derek Jeter of the New York Yankees, Chipper Jones of the Atlanta Braves, Ryan Braun of the Milwaukee Brewers, Jimmy Rollins of the Philadelphia Phillies, Dustin Pedroia and Kevin Youklis of the Boston Red Sox, Curtis Granderson of the Detroit Tigers, Roy Oswalt of the Houston Astros, and Adam Dunn of the Washington Nationals.
With the impeding snow storm tonight its hard to believe that we are only a month from the start of the baseball season! The first "official" week of Spring Training is over.
The Mets are currently 3-2 and 1 game behind the Grapefruit league leading Cubs/Pirates.
The Mets have had little trouble scoring runs so far this spring. Today's 13-1 victory over the Astros is a perfect example.
Brian Schneider hit a grand slam and Carlos Delgado followed with a 3 run homerun to complete an 8 run inning. Delgado's average for the spring rests at a healthy .417.
The next few weeks will be a little slow, as many Mets are leaving camp to compete in the World Baseball Classic.
The biggest news out of Mets camp so far has been Johan Santana . Reports of Santana's elbow being tight has many Mets fans nervous.
Santana was supposed to fly back to New York for an exam by team doctors, but the team changed their minds after Santana threw a 15 minute bullpen session and felt fine. The impending snow storm also was a factor.
I'm sure that I speak for all Mets fans when I say that before I see Santana in a game, I will remain very nervous. The Mets cannot afford to not have Santana in 2009.
Every week I will also complete my week in review with who I think will be the Mets 5th starter in 2009. Based on this week, I would like to see Livan Herandez.
David Wright's average for the spring is currently .444
In the next few days, I will be posting some new shirt designs! I'll try and make some more colors available than I have before. In addition, I'm going to do my best to keep the prices down.
So far, our endeavor has collected 50 dollars in profit to be donated to the David Wright Foundation. I have decided that I'm going to hold off on sending in the money until the end of the season and can send in a sizable check to the Foundation.
In the meantime, one of our loyal readers, Wendy, has sent in a picture of her rocking The Wright Stuff shirt in the Pink Duo shirt! Thanks, Wendy!
Do you own one of our shirts? Send us a picture and we'll post yours too!

Livan Hernandez was on the mound to start the game. Things were looking good in the 2nd when the Mets scored 3 runs off Cardinals pitcher Todd Wellemeyer.
Then Freddy Garcia took the hill... and the wheels came off for the Mets. He only managed two-thirds of an inning and gave up 4 runs in the process. Garcia was awarded the loss as well as a blown save.
Casey Fossum pitched two scoreless innings and Conor Robertson pitched a scoreless inning as well.
The Mets hitters managed little off Cardinal pitching until late in the game.
Bobby Kielty hit a 3 run bomb in the bottom of the 9th off former Met Royce Ring. Alex Cora also had a late game RBI knocking in a run in the 9th.
The Mets, however, could not keep their late rally going and fell to the Cardinals 9-8.
David Wright was 0-2 with one walk and one strikeout. He left 2 men on base. Wright's average for the spring is still a strong .333
The Mets clobbered the Florida Marlins in the first Grapefruit League game of the year, which saw Jerry Manuel's windshield of his Cadillac get cracked by a foul ball.
The Mets allowed just one hit, an infield single by Maybin in the fourth against Dillon Gee, in the first seven innings. Oliver Perez (two), Gee (two), Jon Switzer (one) and Nelson Figueroa (two) were the pitchers. Only Perez and Figueroa allowed walks.
Luis Castillo, who led the Mets to a win yesterday, continues to produce for the Mets, going 1-2 with two runs scored on his first inning single and two walks.
Carlos Delgado is starting off the season "en fuego," going 2-3 with two runs scored and a walk.
Carlos Beltran went 1-4 with a home run off of former Met Willie Collazo in the sixth inning.
Daniel Murphy went 1-2 with a walk and an RBI single.
Both Ryan Church and Brian Schneider went 1-3.
But the day belonged to Jose Reyes, who hit two home runs, one of which was a grand slam. Reyes was 2-4 on the day and knocked in six runners.
David Wright started off the Spring Training season on the "Wright" foot, going 2-4 with two singles in the five spot.
According to Adam Rubin of the Daily News, David Wright participated in a photo shoot with Stack Magazine. We'll keep you updated on when the article is scheduled to hit Newstands, so keep on the lookout!
You can hear it in David Wright's voice. It kills him to talk about this, about how he seemed to morph from one of baseball's best clutch hitters into someone who couldn't deliver for the Mets when it counted most last season.
Part of him surely wants to publicly dismiss his ugly clutch numbers in 2008 as fluky, and indeed his strong career numbers offer proof of what Wright can do under pressure. Still, he knows that won't fly, in part because two straight September collapses by the Mets mean having to grit your teeth and live with the fallout, even being called chokers by Cole Hamels...
