Video: Mets David Wright Gives Phillies the Finger

NEW YORK, NY - APRIL 08:  David Wright #5 of t...

Despite playing with a broken pinkie finger, David Wright returned to action yesterday and crushed the first pitch he saw to deep center for a home run. The bomb off Vince Worley can be seen in the video below. Wright ended up going 3 for 5 with 2 runs in the game.

As I wrote earlier this week, he broke the finger diving back to first base on a pickoff attempt. And there was serious consideration about putting him on the disabled list. As a matter of fact, Josh Satin was flown in from Buffalo and was in Philly warming up before the game yesterday.

The Mets took both games of the series so far and go for the sweep this afternoon against Cole Hamels. Mike Pelfrey is on the mound for the Mets and I’m sure he’s glad to have Wright in the field behind him after that performance yesterday.
