David Wright is a mess

17 Comments

David Wright is having an awful season. He’s hitting .270/.328/.385 — so far his worst season as a major leaguer — and there have been no signs of coming out of it. He tells John Harper of the Daily News what’s been going wrong:

“I’ve made some mistakes this year, revamping some things with my swing that I probably shouldn’t mess with . . . Instead of realizing there are going to be times during the season when you’re going to have a hiccup and you need to ride it out, I was too quick to make adjustments, and you get to the point where you can’t remember what it felt like when you were going good.”

In other news, I assume based on that quote that the Mets hitting coach position is vacant. Forward your resumes to Sandy Alderson if you’re qualified.

In even other news, when my kids were toddlers, this was their favorite song. And reading this story put it in my head:

Good luck getting rid of that one.
