Several of the Mets were in town today for an event at Citi Field. David Wright made his way into the studio with Mike Francesa on WFAN. As you would expect, a lot of the interview is about the dismal 2009 season that the team had as a whole. But he also goes into great detail about his own strange offensive season without the power that he’s had in previous seasons.
The dimensions of Citi Field and the impact on Wright are an issue as well. Personally, I like watching the Mets in a heavily-slanted pitchers park. The new Yankee Stadium and Citizens Bank are a joke and I’d hate to have to watch the Mets in a stadium like that. So I don’t have a problem with some reduced offense.
They get into the topic of steroids. I like Wright’s take on it. He didn’t give the typical protective fellow player answer that I expected. His opinion on the matter sounded just like every other fan that I’ve talked to.
