Once again it’s time to get your daily dose of TRDMB’s Mets in the Papers.
Anthony DiComo, “Wright Grinding Through To Season’s End”
“You take a lot of pride in your at-bats,” Wright said. “You take a lot of pride in the pitches that you take. The games that are left, we’re going to go out there and play to win the game. Nobody’s packing it in. There’s too much fight and there’s too much competitiveness in this room to do that. We’re going to go out there and finish as strong as we can.”
“There’s not many positives we can take away from this year as a whole,” he said. “It’s not a learning process dealing with failure. I’m ready after that last out to turn the page and get ready for next year, because this hasn’t been fun for anybody. In fact, it’s been very disappointing.”
David Lennon, “No Fun For Mets As They Play Out The String”
“It’s tough,” Pelfrey said. “It’s like going to work every day and having a bad day. It’s not fun.”
“It’s no fun that it’s come to you’re trying to play for moral victories,” said David Wright who tonight is expected to break Howard Johnson‘s franchise record of 835 games played at third base. “We put ourselves in this position. So we have to finish as strong as we can, hopefully on a positive note, and then get some momentum going into next spring training and have some guys feeling good about individual performances heading into the winter.”
Adam Rubin, “F-mart Robben In Dominican Republic”
His wallet reportedly was stolen “with US$2,000, four credit cards from American banks and some important documents like his Dominican ID. It was stolen while he was in a party with some relatives in an amusement center near his native town, Rio San Juan, in the north of the Dominican Republic. The name of the place where the incident took place is Drink Together, on the road Rio San Juan-Cabrera. He called to the program La Opcion de la Manana 93.3 FM (The Option of the Morning) to confirm the fact and he promised a reward to whomever gets him the documents.”
