Looking Good D-Wright


wrighthitinheadAfter taking a 94 mph Matt Cain fastball off his head, David Wright has announced that he will be wearing Rawlings’ new helmet that supposedly can protect a batter against balls up to 100 mph. I applaud his choice. When these new helmets were announced, most of the big leaguers laughed at them, saying they’ll look ridiculous, apparently saving their brains wasn’t that important.

Then I saw these new helmets. Yowzers. It’ s like that scene in Major League when Vaughn gets his glasses and the manager says “…besides, seeing is the most important thing,” and Willie Mays Hays replies, “It ain’t THAT important…” It looks like Wright took his older brother’s helmet and wore it by accident. I think I’d rather take the fastball off the old helmet…

DwrightNewhelmetWell, at least the Mets can now count the Great and Powerful Gazoo as a member of their team. Maybe HE can magically erase their 17 game deficit in the division…

Ha, I’m just kidding. Nobody is THAT powerful.
