Game Preview: Marlins vs Mets


The Mets are set to to play what will undoubtedly be an emotional night as the captain comes back for this first start in over two years. Last night David Wright grounded out pretty much immediately at start of his pinch hit at bat. That doesn’t matter. Wright has worked so hard and has overcome so many hurdles to return to Queens. For people like me, born in the late 80’s early 90’s, see David Wright as the player attached to the franchise. The rising star during our formative teenage years. Everyone has a David Wright story and we all wish him the best. Thank you David Wright for everything.
