Down the stretch

Davidwrightbp

At this time of year you?re trying to be smart about the way you go about your work and training to ensure you maintain your strength ?- mentally and physically ?- through the most crucial part of the schedule.

DavidwrightsmilingYou still try to make it to the weight room a couple times a week, maybe pick some days to take a few less groundballs and a few less swings.

Willie?s done a great job of cutting down on batting practice and extra work towards the end of the year, plus we have a lot of veterans who?ve played into October before. I lean on them a little and watch how they go about it.

The stretch is when you have to dig down deep and see what?s left in the tank. It?s a great part of the athletic challenge in baseball ? our season is a marathon.

Personally, I feel real good. I think I learned a lesson in pacing myself last year. It was my first full season and I got to a point where I ran into a little wall. Of course, it also helps to have the lead that we have in our division this season because it?s allowed Willie to give the regulars a rest here and there. So I feel great, ready to roll.

I had a little rest when I sat out the second game of our double-header with the Braves, but I don?t think my teammates and coaches like having me on the bench. I?m pretty fidgety, walking around, getting up, sitting down. Jose Reyes is pretty active, too. We?re like head cheerleaders when we?re not in the game, the way we?re always yelling from the dugout.

I don?t like taking days off, but I recognize it?s good for the club to get some other guys at-bats and get a little rest heading into the home stretch.

But there?s still three weeks left in the regular season and I?m going to focus on each game, one at a time. There?s no rush to get to the postseason. I enjoy every game. Sure, we have a big lead but as a competitor you want to win every game and get a hit every at-bat, regardless of how far ahead or behind you might be in the standings.

We still want to win every game and hopefully get to the postseason with a full head of steam. The idea is to finish strong.

We got a big boost this week was when Cliff Floyd rejoined us. Not just because of his presence in the middle of the order but because he?s an emotional leader in the clubhouse, too. He?s good friends with a lot of the guys on our club and he?s great to have around. He?s part of the glue that holds the team together.

David, I’m starting to get pumped for the postseason! I have a feling it’s gonna be a fun October for you guys and us Mets fans.

David…I just want to say that from the moment I saw you in your first game as a MET your smile won me over. You just seemed like a real person who not only loved what he was doing but loved his fans as well. Your an amazing player and I cannot wait to see what your future holds in baseball. I’ve been a MET for 2 years now and I will be a MET for life. The team that your working with is incredible!!! The magic you feel watching all of you together is unreal. Keep up the hard work, enjoy yourself and good luck with the rest of the season. I am looking forward to being in the stands when you play the Florida Marlins. Good Luck with everything.
Michelyn

Great post! You guys will do great in October..I can feel it!! Good luck!

David,

I just want to say that I think it is amazing how long you guys play. I just started playing softball in college and already I am exhausted. Good luck in the post-season!

Devon

Thanks for the post David! I just got my playoff ticket package, and I’m THRILLED beyond belief to be able to cheer you guys on to the end. I’ll be at Shea tonight as well, screaming my heart out. And Sunday too! I’m giving up a slew of Fashion Week events to be able to support the team in person. Fashionably, of course.

I’m really hoping Cliff Floyd is around next year, even if he’s platooning. Once he has the surgery, he’ll be up and running, and it would be great to see him retire at the top of his game. Not that I’m eager for him to retire!

Stay healthy, happy, and as positive as you’ve been all season. You’re our special guy.

By the way… give our fondest regards to Willie. He’s one of my favorite all-time Yankees!
I’ve been impressed with you guys all year. Great season!

I absolutely cannot wait for the postseason! Its a really exciting time for us METS fans! Keep doing what you are doing – its really good to know you will be with the team for a good long time.

Its also nice to know a couple of Virginians are on the team! (you and John Maine of course). I actually live in the town where John went to high school – Stafford, VA!

Lets Go Mets! Lets Go Mets! Lets Go Mets! I believe!

I’m really glad that you’re getting a bit of a break – you seem to work so hard! I’m so excited for the postseason, especially with this fantastic team. I know you guys can make it all the way!

I’ve been waiting 20 years for another chance at the World Series and to me this is the best team we have put together since that time. Although we had a good team in 2000 we were still missing a few pieces. It has been such an exciting season for Met fans. My husband and I watch every game and then rewatch “Fast Forward” the next morning at 5:00 am! With you, Jose and Carlos at the cornerstone of this franchise this team will hopefully be competitive for years to come. Go Mets. Can’t wait for October.

Let’s go mets! Great job so far, and of course good luck making it to the end. You’re amazing.

HEY DAVEY,

SO LISTEN, TODAY IS MY 24TH BIRTHDAY AND I’M GOING TO RED ROCK WEST ON 17TH AND 10TH. I THINK YOU SHOULD COME BY AFTER THE GAME A DO A SHOT WITH ME. YOU’RE SO NOT GONNA COME BUT THIS IS WORTH A SHOT LOL.

HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE

TRISH

David..Im also getting ready for October, as for now, i already got tickets to c u guys in Miami, which i know the mets will win that series….Go METS!!!!!!!!!!

Hey David,

Great to see you’ve come out of your slump – we were pulling for you the whole time and I have no doubt that you will make up for lost time. I have the utmost faith in the Mets for the postseason – you guys have the most heart, and the most fun, that I can’t imagine you not going all the way. I’ll be at the game tonight rooting you all on. Good luck!

- Rebecca

David,

Wow, awesome job as of late! I’m extremely glad that you’re getting better pitches and getting back into the hitting and whatnot. Anyways, haha, you and Jose on the bench can be quite entertaining though to watch although as always it’s alwahys better to see you on the field. So keep it up and thanks for playing such great baseball!

I love you David!

~shea

Hey David, I told my 8 year old son that this year he’s not getting his perfect attendance award in school because if you guys go all the way, ticket tape parade here we come. I missed the one in 86 because my daughter was 2 at the time. I know I’m getting ahead of myself but Can’t you smell it in the air. Love ya, Theresa

Heyy David!!! I went to the game yesterday and I just wanted to say that you and the rest of the guys played great, although you always play great! I know you probably get thousands of invitations to parties, but I am sending one to you at Shea and it would totally be a dream come true if you or any of the other guys could come! My family and I have been diehard Mets fans for as long as i can remember. And i especially love how you Jose Reyes have so much fun like with all those handshakes and everything. Anyways…Thanks, and have a great rest of the season. And good luck in the post-season!!!—GOTTA BELIEVE!!!
…your loyal and dedicated fan, Lily <333

Like everyone else I am very excited about October baseball this year instead of the football. The team has played so hard for us and we all wish you guys the best of luck. However, I am also, like many, superstitious. Nowadays we have blogs instead of newspaper columns, but don’t forget what happened with David Cone in ’88. You don’t want you commnets on someone’s blackboard as a rallying cry. As a Tides fan growing up, maybe you remember the pictures of Elster and Darling on the pitcher’s mound after the ’86 win. Here’s to you getting to repeat it.

David,

I cannot wait until postseason. The Mets are going to own. Good luck with everything! I’ll be at the game on the 19th cheering you and everybody on and throughout the season.

Kim<3

Hey David!
I don’t like it when you don’t play either, but that’s okay. I know you’re getting rest and that the next game you can give that much more. Good Luck in the next three weeks and then in the post season. I know you’re going to do great. I really feel like this is our year, so let’s go Mets!!

Love you David!!

–Kristen

I know you’re not looking ahead to October just yet, but I just wanted to wish you good luck in advance! It’s been quite a ride this season, through both good stretches and not so good ones, and you have been a complete and true winner through it all, David. I’m really going to miss these little posts when the season’s over–thank you for sharing a little bit of yourself and your baseball life with all of the fans, it’s been a genuine joy to read and it truly shows what a wonderful and outstanding person you are, both on and off the field. Go get ‘em, tiger!! I’m positively bouncing out of my chair at the mere thought of you getting to play in your first October! You are so awesome, David. :)

Hey David,

I don’t blame you for being fidgety when you aren’t playing a game. Whenever i would sit out at a softball game, I can’t stop moving. Meanwhile, I never really started in a game so I think i may have annoyed a few people…o well. i only started 3 out of 10 games so…yea. I wasn’t even put in a position i enjoy playing! Always right field…

I KNOW you guys will make it to the world series! I know because I just do. Good luck!

~R.L.H~

(W)Right attitude dude, (W)Right attitude…a hit every at bat and a win every game :D! Good to see that competitive fire still burning within you! Let’s Go Mets !!!

Hey David?

~Betsy

P.S. I love that you called yourself a cheerleader! I am always cheering at my TV for you guys!

hey David,
just dropping a note from down here in va. beach,va. you and the team are doing awesome. in you’re previous blog you mentioned that when your tongue is out, you’re concentrating 100%.in the picture where you are bumping fists with Cliff Floyd, you must have been really focused so you wouldn’t miss. ha-ha.

just a funny observation. METS RULE!!!!!

DAVID,
the last blog posted by davisfamof5@aol.com was written by eddie

thanks

METS RULE!!!!!!!

David,
You’re helping my fantasy baseball team do well, THANKS! Good to see you got some rest, you guys play a long, hard season.

Take care of you!

Erica

Hey David,
Im one of the few mets fans in lil narragansett RI, and those of us that are here are once again proud to rise from the wood work as met fans. With the overwhelming numbers of sox and yankee fans around here its tough to get a voice out. BUT THANX FOR MAKING IT EASY!!!

Mets 06 -…. its the year

David,

Looks like your timing is back. You’re swinging the bat much better lately and taking the ball to right. When you do that you’re at your best.

From what I saw of Shawn Green the past few days, it looks like he’s emphasized hitting the ball where it is pitched as opposed to trying to pull everything. As you would expect, the results have been positive. Tell him to keep his weight back and, as my college coach use to say, “see the ball, hit the ball.”

It’s great to see that you will be a Met for a while. Good luck down the stretch. Bring it home.

Steve

Hey David,
Yeah you guys on the team are not the only people happy that Cliff is back. So lets help he can keep that akelees(sp?) a little better. Also, duh as every MET fan has said, can’t wait for the post season, only the second time in my lifetime. Well, I bet you guys will work really hard these last few series. Also. Im sure after you guys clinch will be excited, especially you rookie and guys who have never been there.

LEX(7)

Hi David, I know we are going to win this year. This is our year and nobody is going to stop us. The stupid Dodgers beat us tonight but we will beat the them tommorrow. It’s also good that Belran and Floyd is back. Well goodluck against the Dodgers tommorrow. I know we are going to beat them. Bye. I love you. Let’s Go Mets!!!!
-Veronica

You need the rest, too. No worries. One game at a time great approach… like I say this is a marathon not a sprint and we need you at that finish line ;)

Keep up the positive…

E-mail me!

Why do you tap your glove before you throw the ball to get an out? Doesnt it take a lot of time off the throw?

Hey David,

I just got home from the game at Shea tonight and even though you may have lost, i was still there in the end to support my new york team. I’ve been a mets fan since the day i came home from the hospital, literally. My dad couldn’t wait for me to see my first game. I’m ecstatic that you have a 6 year contract with the mets and i hope you continue with the mets for your whole career. I will always be a fan of yours no matter what team you are on.

You are a devoted player, up for learning new techniques, a true player to your team and yourself. Don’t worry about the media or the business side of playing, just go out there and play America’s Favorite pastime game.Sometimes it can just be as simple as fun and games. Good luck with the upcoming games in Sept. and in the postseason. Stay healthy!

From: one of the faces within the crowd, your fan – Samantha

i love you!

David…You have the style, the charisma,the athletic ability, and the true love of baseball all rolled into one…Stay close to your loved ones…continued success…see you in the playoffs…Go Mets!!!!!!!!…Rob

Hey Davey! Sorry about last night, just know that stuff like that will happen so don’t dwell on it. Your still young and you are still learning, don’t worry Met fans are not mad at you, all you have to do is smile and it’s alright.

It must feel really good that the magic number is so close for you guys, all of you must be so excited and overwhelmed.

I know for sure that you guys will make it all the way, i feel it is destiny and fate. This is our year and i’m so excited to see what will happen in the next few weeks.

I just want to wish you the best in life, your career and the many things that will happen along the way. You are a wonderful and genuine person, so please don’t ever change. I truly hope i get the pleasure in meeting you.

Well, take care and the best of luck for you and the team. God Bless and LET’S GO MET’S!!!

Hey David! Sorry about last night, dont worry you’ll win today. I cannot wait until October, you guys are going all the way, no doubt about it. Well, continue what your doing, and all of the best to you and the Mets. I LOVE YOU!!! You’re the best.
Emma R.

Great game today dude, 3-3 with the clutch hit that delivered the tying and go ahead runs. You rock bro!

Brother Cliff is back on the prowl in left field, Pedro’s threw a simulated game, and the pitching has been superb lately.

A mere 21 games remain until the playoffs…oh baby !!!

Go get’em Davey.

Jack

Hey David!
Tough loss last night. On the bright side, nice win today! You did great, 3-3, 2 RBI’s! (: Nice play today at third in the rundown. I am looking forward to October. You guys will do great, trust me. Well, good luck tomorrow. I’ll be at the game and HOPEFULLY I WILL GET YOUR AUTOGRAPH! Keep up the great work! <3, Katie

Heyy David!
Great game today…3-3 with 2 RBIs! Great way to come out of your slump! Hey…you never know if you keep up the 3-3 games and maybe add a few homers in there…look whos the ?NL MVP?! Great job in the rundwon with Maddox! You do realize that only because of you the Mets won, right! Well, I’m definitely going to the playoffs with you? guys…the tickets are coming!

I LOVEE YOUU AND UR HOTT(sry i was waiting to say that lol)

Mrs. Nicolette Wrigh?t >>>5

LETSS GO DAVIDD!!!?

You guys are awesome…I have been a mets fan for over twenty years and am really excited about this postseason lets go for it all…..

David
Hope the Mets go all the way! You can tell there is such great chemistry among the players. METS fans have waited a long time to have a great team like the 2006METS. I was at a game in August with my nieces and nephew. We were sitting right behind third base, holding a sign for you.

I just want to thank you for waving to them. It made their day!

Hey David,

Home stretch, what am I going to do after you guys end after the world series?. Make it happen. I know it. Mets are making it, you guys are going far, so make it happen. The line up is amazing, the pitching is getting its wins, the defense is strong and we got it. Omar Minaya did great as GM in getting the right guys for a promising 06 season and future. I tip my hat to you guys. Great game today! Nice clutch hitting, going 3-3, very nice. Keep it up. Good luck with the stretch and getting far!

Stephanie

David, you look so skinny there!! =[ Eat something! I LOVE YOUUU. ♥ – Kate

Hey David,
Great game today going 3 for 3 with 2 RBI’s! The Mets won because of you, and now our magic number is a mere 6! Can’t wait till the postseason, that will be exciting. I love you sooo much. ur the BEST.

Emma R.

David,
I am struck by how much you resemble a friend of mine, who lives in County Cork,

Ireland. His name is also Wright. He asked

me to find out if your people are from

Ireland. We would love to know, if you

don’t mind.

Go Mets!!

kat

Heyyyyy
i never really thought about it

but when i went to shea stadium last monday

i saw so many people with Wright t-shirts on

and i was thinking that i loved watching you play and how you do everything for everyone instead of yourself

and i never realized how many people loved what you do as much as i do

i think its really cool for you to have so many fans that really adore you

i am so impressed with how you play the game

you barely ever make and error

and know so much about the game

i love watching you play

keep up the good work

you hold the mets together on and off the field!

hopefully i will see one of the games in the post season

love

yet again another adoring fan

whitney!

David:

For starters congrats to you and the entire Met team, you gaves are giving us something to smile about, and look forward to watching baseball in Oct instead of watching the NY football teams lose. Growing up in NY in the 70′s Seaver was our hero and called the franchise, I think its about time u start wearing that title and the Mets name you Capt of this team. As much as Carlos and Carlos are stars, I feel the team stars are U and Jose. By the way good luck with you and Jose and Carlos going to Japan to respresent MLB and the Mets. One more thing, I read where Jose goes home every night and his mom cooks his dinner, have you been there for dinner yet!!!! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK ETHIC AND YOU ARE OUR CAPTAIN OF THIS TEAM.

Hi David, good game today against the Dodgers. You went 3 for 3 and got the game winning hit. Even though the Dodgers took the lead befor 2-1, I knew this game wans’t over. In the end I was right because we won 3-2. The double play that ended the game was a great play to. Wanger struck out the batter and then Stinett threw out the runner at second, we win. It was a good game. Well goodluck tommorrow against the Dodgers. Let’s beat them and then we could decrease the magic number to 5. I can’t wait to see the game tommorrow to because I am going to that game. I’m looking forward to seeing you tommorrow. I love you. Bye. Let’s Go Mets!!!!!
-Veronica

Sorry to bother you again. I just found out that the Marlins beat the Phillies. So now our magic number is 5 and hopefully we could decrease the magic number to 4 tommorrow. Let’s beat the Dodgers tommorrow. Love you. Bye. Let’s Go Mets!!!!!
-Veronica

Hi David,

I can’t wait for October to come around. I have been a Met fan for 3yrs now and I am so excited for you and your teammates. I am hoping to be able to make it to a playoff game and REALLY hoping for a World Series game. I know I should just concentrate on the games ahead, but it is just so exciting!! =)

It is so fun to watch you and your teammates play together as a team. You can tell that you guys genuinely care about eachother and help eachother out when you are in a slump. I look forward to when you or Jose make a great play so I can see your handshake. It is great to see two young players that get along so well. I am very excited and grateful that you and Jose will be around for a LONG time. Mets Forever!!

Keep up the great work and I hope to see you in October.

Let’s go Mets,

Rachel Fisken

PS- You are my favorite player and I hope you win the NL Aaron Award! You deserve it!!

hey David,

wow, the season’s almost over and you continue to amaze. I was Shea today and you were on fire. Singles, doubles, RBIs. all the opposing teams in the post-season won’t know what hit’em.

I tried to get an autograph today, but people swarm on you like flies. Oh well, there’ll be plenty of more games. maybe I’ll see ya at an away game.

WEll, this is it, the final stretch. You’ve had good times and some serious struggles. Your on your way to becoming a New York Met legend and have no sign of stopping. fight hard, train strong, and play like you’ve never played before. Go out There and show em who’s boss!

LET’S GO METS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

-Dan

P.S. i ot some pics of you at the Met game. glad to see your keeping your tongue in mouth

=D

hey David
I haven’t been this excited about the Mets since 1986 I stuck with them through thick and thin and when you field and you get hits you are the greatest. Even when you do’t i’m there for the Mets. My daughter was only five years old when the 86

mets went to the world series but she shares with me the thrill of the Mets today. GO METS

love ya

luicy

I got this e-mail and had to share:
HER DIARY

Sunday night – I thought he was acting weird. We had made plans to meet at a bar to have a drink. I was shopping with my friends all day, so I thought he was upset at the fact that I was a bit late, but he made no comment. Conversation wasn’t flowing so I suggested that we go somewhere quiet so we could talk, he agreed but he kept quiet and absent.

I asked him what was wrong – he said, “Nothing.”

I asked him if it was my fault that he was upset. He said it had nothing to do with me and not to worry.

On the way home I told him that I loved him, he simply smiled and kept driving.

I can’t explain his behavior; I don’t know why he didn’t say, “I love you too”

When we got home I felt as if I had lost him, as if he wanted nothing to do with me anymore.

He just sat there and watched TV, he seemed distant and absent.

Finally I decided to go to bed. About 10 minutes later he came to bed and to my surprise he responded to my caress and we made love, but I still felt that he was distracted and his thoughts were somewhere else.

I decided that I could not take it anymore, so I was going to confront him with the situation but he had fallen asleep.

I started crying and cried until I too fell asleep.

I don’t know what to do. I’m almost sure that his thoughts are with someone else.

HIS DIARY

Today the Mets lost, but at least I got laid.

David,
We met in Port St Lucie your first spring with the team. I took a picture of you with my girls, and now I look at it, you were so young! The following spring we got another picture and you signed the previous one. This year you were nice enough to take yet another picture with my daughter (whom I have asked you to marry) LOL. and you signed last years photo. I don’t know if you remember or not, but you promised me that spring 2007 you will again sign the one i took. you said “it’s a date” and I’m gunna hold you to it. :)

I grew up @ shea stadium and my girls have been Mets fans since they were born (they had no choice) We now live in Florida but the Mets will always be “our team”. I proudly display my Mets license plate on my car, because I want the whole world to know that I love my Mets. We thank you for helping make our team become #1 and we cannot wait for the series to begin! You are a doll. see you in the spring.

Hey David,
i just want to say thank you so much for making yesterdays game so exciting for me!! i was there and i was screaming my lungs out when you got that clutch hit to take the lead!! My sister is going to the game today, but only so she can get your bobble-head doll for me!! i am so excited for the post-season to start. the last time i went to a post-season game was when Robin Ventura hit that grand slam single in the 15th inning against the braves to win the game. now that was very exciting, but im sure that this year will be even better!! Thank you for everything you have brought to this team, i am looking foward to watching you on this team for a very long time!! I LOVE YOU!!! xoxoxox ~Sam

Hey David, Love you and love the Mets. Been to a bunch of games this season, and sit behind home plate so I can watch you. Unfortunately, I dont get SNY, so was wondering if you are ever available to swing by after the game to give me the play-by-play? :-P In all seriousness, would love to meet you in person. Hopefully I can get to batting practice one of these days. Keep swinging the bat, you are awesome. XOXOXOXO and many smooches!

Michele

Dear David:
I really try to enjoy what the Mets have wrought (no pun intended). This team won’t match the one in 1986 (108-54), unless it goes 20-1 the rest of the way, but then, this team has dominated the league almost as much. I just sit back and enjoy, especially when you whack the baseball.

I just bought the trilogy of “Back to the Future”. In the opening of the first one, Doc Brown says he wants to find out who wins the next 25 World Series. I wanted to say, “The Mets will win the next one in 1986!” Now I think I’ll have more than one to mention.

(Yes, I know you were three on Saturday, 26 October 1985, but then does it matter?)

OCTOBER HERE WE C0ME !!!!! thats all i have to say

<3 lauren

hey David!
just wanted to say great job ystrdy! I’m sure that u will keep up all the great work! You are my favorite Met ever!

luv you forever

♥ Patty

Hi David,
My name is Aja. I am 15 years old and I live in a rural town in Allegany County. My mom is currently working on a book with a retired mets player named Lenny Randle. We watch every mets game together and we are always talking about how we love watching you and Jose. We call you the two youths. I play softball for my high school and I love watching your game to see how I can improve mine. You are an encouragement to be and my siblings. I love the posts. Thanks for being an amazing player,

Aja

David,

Congrats on your recent hot streak! I’m sure that both you personally, and you as in the Mets, will finish off the season with a bang…maybe even a Series ring? I hope so!

With love,

Ashley

Cliff!!! i love Cliff!! I’m really mad he wasn’t playing on labor day. hey David thanks for the autograph that day! it’s great that even though you’re a super rich millionair you still give time to the fans.
thanks a bunch! and have fun with the rest of the season!!

~kelsey

Hi David, today I went to the game, I had so much fun but I’m sad that we lost. Trachsel just didn’t have it today and I think Willie waited to long to take him out. I can’t believe we lost. When I was on line they said that only 12 and under could get the David Wright Bobble head and I got mad, but in the end I got my bobble head. If they would’ve never gave me my bobble head, I would’ve lied and say that I’m 12.(even though I’m 15) I would’ve died if I didn’t get my bobble head. Also I had seen you in the dugout, when you was swinging from on top of the dugout. You was funny. The play you made at third to was a great play. In the end we lost 9-1 but it’s okay because we will win the next game. I still had fun anyway. Oh yeah, you know I saw a girl with a shirt that said, “Mrs.Wright”. I was so mad to. It’s okay though because I know that’s an imposter and I’m the real future Mrs.Wright. I hope I could meet you in person one day though. You don’t know how happy I’ll be. I’ll be going crazy. Well let me let you go. I’m sure you got a lot of other commets to read. Bye. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH WITH ALL MY HEART. Le’t Go Mets!!!
-Veronica

Hey David!
I was at the game today, but we lost. ): I had fun anyway. Nice diving play today in the second inning! (: Too bad Trachsel couldn’t get a win. I waited an hour and a half for you to come out of the dugout to give autographs, but you never came out. It’s okay though. I was kind of disappointed that I didn’t get a David Wright Bobblehead, even though it was for kids 12 and under. (I’m 17, but usually they don’t care that much.) Apparently they did today. I was also mad when Willie took you out of the game today in the eighth inning. I guess he was trying to rest you. I was reading your new post and saw that you don’t like getting the day off. I don’t blame you. I hate it in softball when I get the day off! It really annoys me. I screamed that I loved you today, but I doubt that you heard me. I also waved to you. Good luck against the Marlins tomorrow night!

<3, Katie

Magic number has been reduced now…you guys can sit back and relax. It’s a nice feeling as a fan and a player to now it’s just a matter of time. And it is, about time! I hope you guys enjoy the moment and gear up for what’s ahead- Cardinals? Dodgers?…It won’t matter because you have the best record in MLB and will, God-willing, coast to the WS…Good Luck in Miami!-Joy P.S.- Reyes smoked it again!!!

Loved your game with the Dodgers .. nice goin’ .. 3-3 .. ur the man =D .. keep it up guys & u just might clinch the national league & go to the world series

I’m a little concerned. I mean it’s great to make the playoffs, but a quick exit is not a good thing. I mean many of us remember the last time a heralded Mets team went toe to toe with the boys from LA in the playoffs…Kirk Gibson ring a bell ?
Our 4-11 record against southpaws (ever since we traded X) is my primary concern given the Dodgers put in a couple against us this weekend and split the series. They proved they can stay on par with us and if Penny could pitch anything near his capability…look out. We are sorely missing the services of Xavier Nady. When that trade went down to re-acquire Roberto Hernandez I was baffled and the pickup of Manny Mota makes the deal look even worse. Granted, who would of thunk Mota would become available, but Roberto Hernandez…dude’s a good pitcher but he’s lost a little on the gun since last year. I mean Sean Green is a great pickup but lefties can bust him inside and Lastings just doesn’t have the mileage to compete in the majors yet (he’s still two years away).

David, when going up against the sinister hurlers, you, CarlosB, LaDuke, JVal and JRey have got to carry the ballclub.

I know you guys will…this is our year ! Let’s GO Mets !

David, I was with some friends at Saturday’s game. You are really finding your stride at the right time of the year. Way to go man. I am 43 years old and following the Mets since my first game at Shea in 1969 with my Uncle Paul (may he rest in peace). My knowledge of baseball is very sharp. When the Mets win the World Series this year and you receive your W.S MVP award remember that I said it today first. This year and many more winning season’s are inevitable. We will show the people in the country what real baseball National League style is all about. I hope the Yankees make it to the show (no pitching)so we can show everyone who the real baseball team is in New York NOW!!! My life is filled with moments of the present not trying to relive the past. The New York Mets will always be NYC and the boroughs real baseball team, not a $200 million side show of primadona’s like A-Rod (Mr. K) or Sheff or Giambi. So to you and all the boys of summer, Jose’s, Hernandez’s. Carlos’s, Cliff, Shawn, Endy and Paulie and the entire pitching staff, players and coaches tell them Brooklyn Dave with son Jacob Hayes Kaplan (future NY MET he is 12) and Carly Reilly Kaplan the future is now. LETS GO METS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MAGIC # IS 4!!! :)
(SOON TO BE 3 AFTER TONIGHTS GAME…AND MAYBE EVEN DOWN TO 2 IF PHILI IS PLAYING)

WOOHOO..LETS GO METS!!!!

LOVE YOU!! PLEASE STAY A MET FOR YOUR WHOLE CAREER, NY <3′S YOU!!

XOXOXOXOXOXO

p.s. hit me up at alisha530@hotmail.com

‘Bout time you updated! I was hoping you’d talk about the 20th Anniversary ceremony because I wanted to know if you guys had fun with the men who your current season is compared to, but alas, que sera sera. I’m glad you guys are pumped for the post season. I’ve waited 20 years for this and I’m loving watching such an energetic, charismatic, and let’s face it, totally weird Mets ballclub dominate. To all you guys, keep giving it your all the whole way; it’s gotten you this far, so keep it goin’ for us all!

Lots of Orange and Blue luv,

Jillian

do you think bob wickman trains in the weight room often? =]

Ok well i meant to post this earlier….but what ev.
So the other night i was watching the game and noticed somehting……you have a very nice jawline. Its quite a hot jaw, if i do say so myself. haha! well my friend hannah always talked about “hot” jaws…and i thought she was dumb, but then i saw yours and well you have a hot one.
<3 Stef

This day (9/11/06) is so incredible for NY fans since the tragic events 5 years ago. I remember that day like it was yesterday. I remember sitting on my porch from my appartment watching the smoke from the Towers blow southward with my brother at 5p.m. until sunset. It was so uncertain-life was so real then. I know you guys lost today and I found it very strange: ( D.Williams allowed 9 runs/ 11 hits)…It was strange. I also remember the day after 9/11- the daily lotto# was 911. My uncle was supposed to be working on the 57th floor in the South tower . God-willing and luckily, he was ‘let-go’ due to cut-backs months before the event. Not that I mean to bring a downside or bore you with the events that occurred. But, as N.Y. remembers this tragedy, the light still remains as Met fans remember 9/21- Piazza’s payback to the events and hopefully you guys can turn this day (5 years later) as a memorial for fans by completely dominating the field on that day- Make 9/21/06 a day to remember in Mets history if possible [if not, make any other post 9/11/06 day prior to the playoffs the best offensive statement that the Mets can make and show the rest that the Mets are the best team in MLB---Can the Met offense get 20 runs??--It'd be nice and it could be done!]. Don’t doubt yourselves or give up ever! God Bless,Joy

Wow – great bare-handed play. Have you ever thought of giving up baseball, moving to England and playing cricket? Oh, wait a minute, I don’t think professional cricketers make the same kind of money! Darn it. Please win for me tomorrow. Your devoted UK fans have to stay up so late to watch you, don’t get to bed until about 4 in the morning! And what’s with all those empty seats in Florida? Has anyone got something better to do than watch the Mets?

David,

I remember watching you play in Norfolk Virginia in your last game before you were called up to the Major Leagues. I was completing my annual 2 week training in the

U.S. Navy Reserves. When I returned to New York you were playing 3rd base for the Mets and you hit a home run.

I was excited to see a young player come up with the Mets who has power and can hit tough pitches on both the outside part of the plate and on the inside part of the plate.

Some players have trouble with pitches in certain areas of the strike zone but you seem to be able to drive the ball to right field if it is on the outside part of the plate and keep your hands inside of the ball on inside pitches very well. I have seen you drive tough inside pitches to center field or to the opposite field at times.

You have good balance, a good weight transfer and good hand speed. Your able to stay back enough to hit or foul off nasty changeups and you aren’t bothered by the curve ball to much either.

You are able to get deep into counts and get good pitches to hit. This is good but I think you could hit for more power by being a little more aggressive early in the count. I have seen you take pitches early in the count that you could drive out of the ball park.

You carry yourself with a determined confidence and seem to have a professional demeanor. This is an indication that you have developed good habits based on hard work. This fact reflects well on your high school coaches and possibly is due to some positive influence from your family.

Good luck in your career.

Dr. Christian Rodriguez

david!(d-dub)

One day i will meet you, and you will sweep me off my feet. and vice versa. =]

You wait and see! Itll happen!

David,
Sorry that you guys lost last night. I guess it’s better to lose now than in October. By the way, nice barehander in the second inning! (: Hopefully you guys will win tonight. Good luck tonight. Keep up the fantastic work D-Dub!

<3, Katie

David,
My 15 year old son had the pleasure to meet you at the ESPN Zone in NYC last August after you played the Braves. He had his picture taken with you. Is there any way I can get the picture to you and have you sign it for him. He turns 16 soon and this would be a great gift. He idolizes you and looks up to you as a role model. Keep up the great work you do as a NY Met and also the image you have where kids look up to you. GO METS. Thanks Jim.

Mr.David Wright. im am so excited for the next few weeks for many reasons.
my birthday is in a little less than 2 weeks and my sweet 16 party is in less then 3 weeks. on my real birthday sept 24, i am going to be at the Met Game and im soo excited b.c for some reason i havent been to shea alot not as much as last year.

lets win this game behind..even though you are down 2-0 its okay there no reason why you cant bounce back. i adore you in everway you are a great person and role model..keep up the good work and i hope i can see you soon.

love always

Kimberella

heyyyy davidd,
well, i wanted to tell u how much i am rooting for u right now! (and have been since, forever haha)

well, im watching u right now in the game vs. the marlins, and even though u guys are down with bases loaded – i kno ull do good!

good luckk with everythingg!!

&& i will always be there supportingg u each and every day!!

loveee alwayss ♥

stephh <3

Hey David!
Nice win last night! I didn’t get to watch the whole game because I had school the next day. I watched the news this morning and heard you guys won. Believe me, if I could have watched the whole game, I would have. Great job, 3-5,1 RBI! (2 doubles- go D-Wright!) Well, good luck tonight.

<3, Katie

Hey david,
I am your biggest fan. I would love to meet you one day, that would be so awsome. I am also a third baseman, isnt that awsome.

From

Adam

Hey David,
Nice game last night even though you really have nothing to worry about considering your 16 games ahead of your division,but that doesnt mean you should stop winning. I’m routing for you on your next game against the Marlins tonight. Hopefully Tom Glavine will throw a good game becasue he is your best pitcher right now considering everyone is injured.GO METS.

From,

Adam

P.S- email me sometime i would love to chat with you.

Hey David,
It’s too bad you went into that mini-slump after the all-star game. You were on target for MVP,not that you’re numbers aren’t great. But your homerun pace dropped considerably. Do you think it had to do with the homerun derby?Good luck in the playoffs.Hope to get tix.

from,

Brian

Dang that was a hard collision…you should have slid leg first Dave and spiked Olivo. Good to see that you shook it off though.

Jack

hey david,
I’ve been scouting you for about three years now you are my idol. You are such a great player and have such a good attitude. Thank you for setting such a great example for me.

p.s. please write me back.. from Aaron

Well u didn’t clinch tonight,but, you have been outstanding in showing the marlins you can’t be kept down even after that awful loss the first game of the series. That’s what I admire about this team- the guts to show that your team can’t be messed with. The comeback of this series goes to show the fans that it ain’t over until it’s over…that’s what I love about baseball. You never count teams out. Even mistakes/errors other teams make which seem to occur magically show that ‘make mistakes and the Mets will make you pay!’…That’s the miracle/magical/amazing feeling you get as a Met fan. Real baseball! Ups-and Downs and rollercoaster rides all season were so worth-it! Delgado in this series was hot! And, Lo Duca ( even playing through his thumb injury allows me to respect him as a player-even though I still miss Piazza in his position). Wow! So close to the clinch which will probably be set with Pedro’s return, however, I wish you guys would hold out for Monday’s game so you could clinch at home… Great going and keep up the good work!:+),Joy

Well David, I’m not a 13-? well however old your female fans get, probably 115 or something like that, but I do have a great tip for you. Your next bobble head… totally has to have it’s tongue out. That would be hilarious. Well anyway, you’re amazing, in many ways. Especially cause you’re so humble. Let’s all just keep believin’. Even though this year won’t really be a miracle. And remember your team has the greatest fans in the world. We all love all of you, no matter your mistakes. Even if you don’t make it, heck you’ve got 90 wins! 90! BEST RECORD IN ALL OF BASEBALL!! ALLL!! That’s sick. Oh hey I’d love to get something signed by you, but I can’t get up to the games very often, maybe we can work something out. I do run a cigar store…

Anway, Thanks David, your fan,

Joe

Hi David! It’s great to see how far you and the team have come. Magic number is 2!! Woo hoo! Keep hitting, keep smiling and good luck!!

Hey David, It would be so cool if you did a signing at Build A Bear in Manhattan. I took my son last year to meet Cliff Floyd and in June he got to meet Trachsel and Heilman and it was on his birthday. You and Reyes should do it together. Take Care, Theresa

Congrats on the 90th win. Its always so exciting to watch the team and read your blogs.
Keep em’ comin’…

Best of everything !

i had a dream i talked to you about lebron james. strange.

Hey David!
Nice comeback in the top of the 11th! (: Magic number is 2! Oh yeah! That was a pretty hard collision at the plate last night, I was so worried that you were going to be hurt. You weren’t hurt thank goodness. Well, good luck against the Pirates this weekend. Let’s Go Mets!

<3, Katie

David alls i can say is THANK YOU! Ive been a met fan for so long…i have seen so many disgusting things happen at shea stadium, but finally there is a reason to be excited, we’re division champs and alls i gotta say is bring on the A.L.!

Dave,
My names Matt and I had the pleasure in high school to be friends with two of your younger brothers and meet yourself as well…Can you believe that just over 5 years ago you were being congratulated on being the Gatorade Va Player of the Year and now you’re well on you’re way to one **** of a successful pro career with MVP numbers in sight. You’re truly an Amazin’ Met and good luck in the coming postseason….I can truly say ‘Best of Luck’ from everybody here in the ‘peake in the finale to this year and the years to come.

hi David,

Im such a huge fan n love u so much that my friends call me Mrs.Wright! *lol* hope u guys clinch the division tomorrow n not today since the Braves r winning right now. much luv to u!!

Lourdes aka Lulu,Recess,”Mrs.Wright”

Hi David,
It’s amazing to walk down the street and see how many people in Mets items there are. I think I counted at least 20 today. I have to wonder wether most of these fans were there two, three or more years ago when you guys weren’t doing as hot. I know I was.

Great game last night! It was exciting to watch.

2s the magic number!!!!

Glad to hear the Willie’s monitoring the work you guys are doing that way you all won’t burn out in the post season. This is the year… I’m sick of hearing about how the Yankees win the WS all the time… It’s Mets time!!!

Mets forever!!!

Emily

Hey David,
You are my favorite player and also someone who I look up to. Your work habits are awesome and it has definately shown throughout your first two full seasons in the big leagues. I had just realized now that you have an mlblog. Even though it is belated, I would like to congradulate you on signing a long-term contract with the Mets. I understand that you would like to like play for the Mets your entire career, i would also love to see you in a Mets uniform your entire career. I already have taken up too much of your time but I would just like to congradulate you on your successful season thus far and wish you good luck down the stretch and on our highly anticipated post-season. :)

Thanks for your time

Your Fan,

Anthony

WE’RE GONNA CLINCH TONIGHT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
**** YEAHHHH

LETS GO METS :)

Hi David,

Im from Dominican Republic. Just want to let you know that you have lots of fans here, as much as Pedro and Josť. We believe in you guys and we follow every single game. This is mets year and you’re just getting better every day. I know you’re gonna make it!

Hope you can visit our island sometime.

Buena suerte!

Nicole

Play the first postseason game likes it’s your last! Don’t overlook each game..keep it up!

David,
I would just like to say that I’ve been a Met fan for my whole life (haha, all 18 years) and this has been the most exciting season ever. You guys are amazing and I’m so excited for the postseason. You are my favorite player and I just love to watch you play. Even though I’m in Baltimore and I don’t have a tv, I’ve been keeping up with the games online and hopefully when I go home to jersey, I’ll be able to see one last game at Shea. Keep up the good work and good luck with everything.

-Liz

Daaavid, you and Jose are so cute and I’m a Yankees fan! anyways I love your team. You guys are all fun to watch. I’m hoping for another Subway Series! btw glad to see you come out of your slump! you and Jose are two of my favorite non-Yankees. no Yankee game tonight so I thinnk I’ll go watch you guys clinch. =] adios!

Hey David
Tough lost tonight. I was at the game last Friday. If you saw me I was the girl trying to take a picture of you with my phone. You look so much hotter in person. Anyway, I just want to say Happy celebration and good luck to you guys in the postseason.

Your#1 Fan!!

david, you guy’s have made me proud again to be a met fan.I’ve been waiting a long time,and it would be real nice to see you guy’s in the series against that other ny team lol. I wish you the best of luck and the rest of the team. you’ve come a long way,no sense stopping now. go get ‘em

Hi David, I’m very excited knowing that our magic number is 1. Last night we didn’t clinch but it’s okay because I know that today we are going to beat the Pirates today. I felt sad for Pedro last night to. Even though he gave up the 4 runs, he looked so sad. I hope he feels better. Anyways, I hope that we could clinch on the feild. It would be so much better because you could celebrate on the feild and just get crazy. LOL. I know we worked very hard to get to where we are today and I know we are just going to keep going until we win that World Series. Well goodluck against the Pirates tonight, I know we could do this. When we do, I’m going to get crazy. I’ll be so happy I’m going to be jumping around all over. LOL. Bye. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH. LET’S GO METS!!!!!
-Veronica

Hey David!
OMG we didn’t clinch tonight, but it’s okay. We’ll get it tomorrow. (hopefully) Last night was a tough loss for you guys. I saw Pedro’s picture today in the Sports Section, he looked like he was going to cry. I can’t wait until we clinch! Well, good luck tomorrow against the Pirates. Let’s Go Mets!!!!

<3, Katie

Hey David,
Ah man! I thought we’d make it tonight. Oh well, the magic number is still 1. We’ll be able to clinch.

Nice barehand grab, by the way, even though it was foul.

LETS GO METS!!!

Emily

P.S. Tell Carlos B. that was an awesome throw!!!!

P.P.S.(lol) Please tell X-man hey from all the Mets fans.

Dear David,
I just wanted to say that it has been a great experience to see you make your way to being such a great ballplayer. I have followed you ever since your days at hickory high when i actually got to pich against you. You have been a really good role model to me and i think that helps me work hard to get to where to you are today. Anyways i just wanted to let ya know that i like that way uconduct yourself on and of the field. I hope you guys get the crown this year and keep rippin the cover off the ball.

Rob

DW: An amazing season!! Read a couple good takes on the Mets’ chances in the post-season. A battle vs the Cards should be epic!:

http://www.greatsportsnews.com/mlb/mlbsrch.php?q=NY+Mets

David,
Probably one of the best gifts you and the team could give to ‘us’ Met fans is to clinch at home. I am watching the game as I write and see the Phils are winning and the Mets are losing and there hasn’t ever been a time I wanted the Mets to lose, but, in this one case- I am crossing my fingers because a bunch of us (six of us) bought tickets for Monday’s game and it would be ultimately incredible if the celebration could be done at home where your fans would enjoy the experience as much as you ‘guys’ would. It’s been a long time and it would be amazing to see this game! I’ll be sitting first-base side Loge box to watch the ‘best team in baseball’ get props to win it all in the next few weeks…but, Oh no! What do I do after October except go to Gold’s gym, watch the replays, and wait for Spring training which I will attend next year because I haven’t been this excited about my team in a decade…Thanks for the memories-my students love my stories of the game!Keep your upbringing-what a champ you are–reminds me of how I was brought up! You are such a role model for all!–Joy

O.K. so David tell the truth, you guys deliberately lost so you could clinch at home. LOL LOVE YOU GUYS. Theresa

Two words– “Thank You!”.

Hey Baby, how you doing? I can’t believe we got swept by the Pirates yesterday. That was a bad loss. Last time we got swept by them was April 2004. I guess in a way it’s good because we could clinch on our feild. We only need one more win to clinch. I’m hoping that tonight is the night that we get that one win. I know we could do this. Well Bye. I LOVE YOU WITH ALL MY HEART NO MATTER WHAT!!!!!
Let’s Go Mets!!!!!

-Veronica

Look like the clinch is tonight! And I can’t watch the game! I’m so mad .. anyways hang in there and let’s keep on going :)

CONGRATS, DAVID!!!
Go All the Way Now.

Let’s Go Mets!

David and your entire team, you’ve earned anew the nickname “Amazin’”. I’ve been following Mets baseball since ’62, and will do so probably till I die. There aren’t enough words for the joy in the good times like these, and I’m so thrilled with you and the other youngsters as part of my Mets! One of the original owners would call the players “my boys” and that’s how it feels to this Mom. The team this year has taught my son that a fan roots for his team through thick and this and then once in a while the guys reward you (and themselves) with something like this division championship. It’s more than a game, and you all have EARNED that love you felt tonight. Your class (as a person, not just a sports hero) showed when you touched your fans tonight, and touched me to the heart.

Hi to all of the Mets players! This is going to sound a bit sappy but I remember watching the 1986 Mets win the World Series. As a little girl of six, I was not always certain of how much of an impact that was to all of the Mets fans out there who had been awaiting another World Series win since 1969. Now that it is 20 years later and I am grown up, I completely understand the dynamic of the players and the fans during the season. I wanted to congratulate all of the 2006 players for a well-played and well-managed season so far. I am noticing the 6 year old students in my class that are Mets fans floundering a little because they do not realize what type of impact this might have on their life but then I remember that I was exactly the same way.
I know all of you (the team, manager, employees and fans who help to make the Mets the team that they are) will do great during the rest of the season and into the postseason. I will also be cheering from the stands on Friday, September 22nd in support of Catholic Schools because I am an educator in one. Again, congratulations for winning the National League East division title and a hard earned season.

GIVE EM **** JOSE!!! I for one miss you in Chi town. As I sit here sadden at yet another loss for us, I’m thrilled you and your team are heading for the playoffs. Kick some *** for me!

Hey David,

So yeah, I was aggravated when you guys didn’t clinch in Pittsburgh, but i am SO GLAD you brought it home. i watched the game from home and you are SO right about the energy at the stadium being electric. I was 50 miles away on Long Island and I had chills a few times. I was 18 the last time the Mets won a division title and ITS ABOUT TIME we did it again. It might sound corny, but I actually had tears in my eyes when Floyd caught the last out. Immediately after, my phone started ringing off the hook. I knew I’d be happy, but I never thought you guys could bring tears to my eyes. I am SO excited for you and the whole team and I have never been so proud to be a Mets fan. It is so much fun to watch you all on the field. You are all so close and that must have been the missing ingredient in previous years. It isn’t about “me” it’s about “we” and I think that’s outstanding. I am also impressed with your character even more than I had been. Everytime you spoke to the Press, the first thing you mentioned was the fans. Then, to top it off, it really touched my heart when I saw you walk along the stands and high five the fans and signed autographs. That was quite selfless of you, to focus on the fans even after, quite possiblt the biggest day of your life. That speaks volumes about you as a person. You are truly a class act and my respect for you as a person and as an athlete grows every day. Congratulations on winning the division title! You all worked hard and itpaid off. Now, with the records agains the Dodgers, Cardinals, and umm that other team, you should have the NLCS in the bag, then we NEED you to wipe the field with the Yankees, so we can shut their fans up once and for all. YOU CAN DO IT! YOU HAVE THE WRIGHT STUFF and I, for one, am behind you all the way!!!!!!!!!!!

YEAH BABY!!!! NL EAST CHAMPS!!!

Much love,

Karen

The Team. The Time. The Division Title.

CONGRATS!!!!!!

CONGRATULATIONS DAVID, YOU DESERVE IT..the team did amazing and so did you!! you guys are amazing!! and by the way i was loving the cigar haha perfect touch!

<3kATIE

Mike you have played a great season….congrats on winning the NL eastern division…. I would have to say you are my favorite player since gary carter……The beasts of the east are back!!!!! Once again!!!! I knew it from the beginning of the season ….. you gotta believe….. <3 Kristen ( the most excited met fan in the world)

Hi David, I actually just wanted to say congratulations to you and to the Mets for winning the NL East. You actually went out with a friend of mine, Carlos, and he gave you my “hello” message :) Next time, calling at 3 am is definitely alright! :)

–Arleen

David, i wish i could have partied w/ you guys last night!!! it was so fun watching you guys celebrate…i taped it! (i’m a loser, i know) haha anyway…now its time to win the world series!!!!!

if you ever get a free minute, please email me..even if its 1 sentence, it would make me the happiest person ever!!! i’m a huge met fan…actually a huge sports fan in general. everyone thinks i’m a freak b/c its weird that a 23 year old girl would rather stay in and watch Met games than go out! haha

but email me, i have a question for ya but cant write it on here..i actually know someone who knows you!! aand i could send u the link to my myspace page (so u know i’m not some weird 90 yr old psycho stalker) although i keep hoping i’ll run into you at a bar in the city!!! that would be amazing. oh and i have some pics of me in my Mets gear on my myspace. i’m not leaving the link on ehre b/c i dont want any perverts harrassing me!

ok sorry, this message is getting way too long, talk to you later!

ps-i hope you or the guys still keep in touch w/ Nady b/c i feel bad for him, he deserves to be celebrating w/ you guys :(

[Willie Randolph] later returned to the field to thank his players with hugs and some kisses too. David Wright, a bottle in one hand, a cigar in his mouth, posed for a photo with his manager and got a kiss.

“There goes the image,” his manager told him. “You drink, you smoke and you fool around.”

Ha! Always knew you were a stone cold scoundrel.

God, this team is amazing! Watching Cliff Floyd catch the clincher? And later calling you “boy” on TV? And how you gave the fans the love? Truly, it was just the most special night in ages!

Hi Baby, congratulations on clinching and now being the 2006 NL East champions. Even though me and my family wans’t at Shea, we still got our Mets cups and filled it up with soda and celebrated. It was funny. I was sooooo happy when we won, you don’t know. Well maybe you do by being an actual player winning the division. LOL. Really though, I was so happy I couldn’t stop smiling. I was smiling threw the whole night. It was fun to see you and the Mets celebrating. Espically when you soak Julie and Chris Cotter. You guys really deserve to win, you worked very hard and I’m sure all the Met fans are thankful. I know I am. Oh yeah, I saw you with that cigar in your mouth. That was funny. Did you really smoke that cigar? I’m just curious. You don’t look like the type that smokes. If you do though, its okay. I don’t have a problem with it. This may sound a little silly but you was looking sooo cute with your hat backwards and your shirt soak. All though you look sooo cute no matter what. Well congratulations again, goodluck against the Marlins tonight, and I’ll see ya at the World Series. Bye. I LOVE YOU SOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH. Let’s Go Mets!!!!!
-Veronica

Congrats to you and the rest of the team. You all deserve it. As for the guy whos sign it was, are you serious? It is like an honor that he even took it from you… Then to ask for it back—- lol

DAVID-SELL THE SIGN ON E-BAY :)

David, I love you, AND the mets. alot. Great job being the 1st team in baseball to clinch a division! Hmmm I guess that means ur the beast. I mean best. =] <3 Stef

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!! This 2006 team and all of the coaches are truly AMAZING! There I am sitting in the sports bar with all of my friends (all Yankee or Marlin fans) and I broke down…tears started to come from my eyes….I couldn’t believe the impact that it had on me. And for you…being your 2nd year you have accomplished so much already…(by the way I just voted for you for the Hank Aaron Award…you deserve it all David!!!!) I had chills when Cliff caught that fly ball. You all deserve this so much. I am so happy for you all and I can’t wait to see how the rest of the season goes…only a few more steps to the World Series. The METS fans are all on cloud 9 right now. Good Luck and continue all of the hard work…hard work does pay off and you all have proven that. Michelyn

David-

Dear David:
Man, do I love catching your enthusiasm! Congratulations on compling the best record in baseball with the Yankees at 97-65, which has never been done! I will miss Pedro (Martinez), but I will be catching any vicarious thrills with you guys –unlike 1986, when I was too busy to enjoy it.

WHAT THE HAY IS WRONG WITH YOU GUYS? YOU NEED TO PLAY LIKE A TEAM. YOU WERE UP AHEAD BY SO MANY GAMES, AND YOU JUST THREW IT AWAY. I CAN’T BELIEVE IT. DO YOU KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE GO HOME AFTER A HARD DAY OF WORK AND HARD DAY OF SCHOOL AND LIKE TO WATCH A GOOD GAME OF BASEBALL ON THE TV AND WATCH YOU WIN? SO MANY PEOPLE!!!!LOSING IS OK BUT NOT IF YOU ARE LOSING SO MANY GAMES THAT UR CHANCE OF BEING IN THE NLCS IS GONE. YOU GIVE PEOPLE HOPE AND FAITH AND I SALUTE YOU FOR THAT, BUT Y CAN’T YOU WIN AGAINST THE MARLINS? I AM NOT JUST BLAMING U, BUT THE WHOLE METS TEAM. THERE WERE DEFINETELY INDIVIDUAL EFFORTS, BUT U NEVER UNIFIED AS A TEAM, AND NEVER HAD A TEAM EFFORT. YOU ALL WERE SO CLOSE TO HAVING UR DREAMS COME TRUE. SO CLOSE. I CAN’T BELEIVE IT. IT’S RIDICULOUS. YOU GUYS JUST COULDN’T GET UR ACT TOGETHER AND PLAY JUST ONE FRICKIN GAME AGAINST THE MARLINS. MAYB NEXT YEAR. I AM SORRY THAT I AM BEING SO MEAN, BUT I AM JUST REALLY REALLY DEPRESSED AND DISSAPPOINTED. SORRY ABOUT THE HARSHNESS. YOU GUYS DID HAVE A GREAT YEAR THOUGH (UP UNTIL SEPTEMBER).

I cant believe we [mets] lost… HERE COME THE WATER WORKS… now all those stuck up yankee fans are gonna BRAG!!!!!!!!i cant beleive a team we beat 13-0 yesterday beat us!!!! THE MARLINS!!!! and were not NL EAST CHAMPS ANY MORE…. MY BRAGGING RIGHTS ARE GONE!!!!!!! WHO GOT POST SEASON?!?!?!? NOT US!SRRY BUT THIS IS THE WAY I GET MY PAIN AND SUFFERING OUT…. UR AMAZZZIIINNGGGG THO! <3333

I really agree with that because even if your in high school like me you still need rest and you still have to stay strong, to be on top of your game.
