The prediction starts here. David will win the MVP next season and put up considerably better numbers than he had last season. Trust me on that one. He is very angry about how the mets lost last season, I believe he has tasted some sense of victory with the NL east championship but he wants the real title and that is the world series title.
I believe that the mets improved considerably even though they lost out on some key free agents that could have helped them. First off, Barry Zito although will have a good season is not worth that kind of money and i am happy that the mets thankfully backed off giving him more money because my season seats would cost alot more now and i still think the mets have the pieces ( although starting pitching might become a issue) to make a title run and this time everyone will be healthy and wiser come playoff time. Yes the Phillies have considerably improved over the winter and so has the Braves but the Mets are still going to be on top thanks to one thing, Swagger. Jeez , i even learned how to do the D Wright/ Reyes hand shake, I am trying to even learn Espanol so when i see Reyes, I can say Jose, Que Hora Es? GAMETIME WHOOO!. I will learn Spanish and ill even learn how to do the merengue so i can see if Reyes has a sister and maybe get with her so i can hang out with Jose.
Jeez, I just want to chant Jose already, I want to see David run to third base. I want to Carlos (Viva La Puerto Rico) Beltran slam one down the line and out of the park. I also want to see Carlos ( VIVA LA PUERTO RICO X 2) Delgado Slap a 800 foot home run to centerfied. I also want to see my new buddy Moises Alouuuuuuuuu slap a home run and i cannnnot wait to see my hero Paul Loduca finally beat up Arod during the subway series.
Finally, I will leave you all by saying, Mets will win next season. Mark my words. David for MVP. I will leave some pictures showing our boys.

THE BEST THIRD BASEMEN IN NY. So for all of you yankee fans out there who like to come and bash me during the season or for all of you secretive yankee fans out there who like to come and vote that the mets will never win another world series on the left side of the blog just remember this, We will be back next year, Stronger than ever and even though our pitching is older (( the front two men), We will build on the youth and bust out the bats and also bust out the brooms across all of baseball.
So to everyone please come and join the Wrightoholics fan club on Yahoo, Its very accesible and we talk about David daily.
Also, tough loss for the J-E-T-S, JETS JETS JETS. They took on a team which their talent could not compete with. Their heart on the other hand overtook any team in football this season and i jsut wanted to say here that it was a absolute TRAVESTY that Eric Mangini got only 3 votes for coach of the year. So that’s just some bulletin board matierial for him next year to become even better and maybe he can call willie and spread some of the Manginious around. I just wanted to also give a shout out to my older, Some what wiser brother Thomas who is actually a
Yankee fan but in his mind, A Wrightoholic. I find it tough to believe that someone with such class and honor would go walking around with a Derek Jeter jersey, Only to walk around with a Wrightoholics shirt on the next day, Real Classy. Lets not even get to my other Brother who is a Red Sox fan and blabbers on about how great their rotation is with MICE-K in the fold. I believe the mets team is a strong one and will continue to get stronger as the season folds down.
Now heres a note i wrote to Jesus. PLEASE GOD, IM BEGGING YOU, Let the mets spring training begin. I sort of feel like Cartman from the previous episode of GO,GOD GO PART X2, When he freezes himself and time travels to the future only to see that he freezes himself ions into the future then to realize he missed out on the great nintendo wii. I feel like that now, I want to go freeze myself and **** i would if global warming would not be murdering NYC right now, Just so i can envision the Mets again on the field getting ready to whack the competition and speaking of competition,
You Cardinals, You want to chant JOSE JOSE JOSE JOSE in the locker room. We will tear you apart limb by limb when we meet on that faithful night in the opening of baseball;s season, And we will be the one’s singing JOSE JOSE JOSE, OR I MIGHT BE EVEN ALOUING ALL THE WAY DOWN THE STREET. Back to the time travleing, I wonder if i did freeze myself, How would this season look and 100 years down the line, how many world series would the mets have? Simple. 100. Its simple math based on the way the Mets are young and i figure this. David Wright’s son’s will win numerous MVP’S and world series titles while Derek Jeter’s son’s will work at his various car washes or maybe theyll wash dishes at Mariano Rivera’s resturant. So back to my letter. PLEASE LET THIS SEASON START ALREADY, I have nothing left except for the hopeless knicks. Maybe one day i will wake up and all of this writing will be a dream and my fan club will be a dream and who knows, Maybe there isnt a Mr Wright on the mets but i know one thing. If this isnt a dream, everyone is baseball watch out next season because the Mets are ready to slap you around.
NOTE- ALL EVIL WILL BE STRUCKTHROUGH.
Pennington overcomes surgeries to win comeback POY
NEW YORK — One rotator cuff injury often is enough to ruin a premier athlete’s career. Chad Pennington overcame two in two years to win The Associated Press NFL Comeback Player of the Year award.
The New York Jets had become too accustomed to seeing Pennington leave the field with a damaged right shoulder. After the 2004 season and again midway through 2005, he underwent surgery to repair his right rotator cuff.
There’s was so much doubt about Pennington returning to form that the Jets had four quarterbacks in training camp last summer, including a second-round draft pick.
So all the seven-year veteran did was lead the Jets to a surprising 10-6 record and a wild-card berth one season after they went 4-12 — most of it with him sidelined — and changed coaches. Pennington’s precise execution of a short passing game made Laveranues Coles and Jerricho Cotchery into 1,000-yard receivers and offset a mediocre running game.
Not surprisingly, Pennington didn’t see winning the award, announced Thursday, as an individual honor.
"The organization has been great in providing me with all kinds of special resources to get back healthy and play at a high level," he said. "My teammates have been behind me since Day 1. For us to be able to put it together out on the field would mean a lot … it’s been such a team effort."
Chad Pennington proved that his shoulder was recovered.
Pennington’s efforts earned him 27 votes in balloting by a nationwide panel of 50 sports writers and broadcasters who cover the NFL. He finished far ahead of two other quarterbacks, Drew Brees of New Orleans (8½) and Carson Palmer of Cincinnati (5½).
"He never reinvented himself," Coles said of Pennington, who passed for a career-best 3,352 yards and finished second in the AFC with a 82.6 passer rating. "You all [in the media] were the ones who left him for dead. I’m pretty sure he didn’t leave himself for dead or he wouldn’t be in this situation. And I definitely didn’t. He never went anywhere."
Well, actually Pennington went under the knife twice, and because he’s never had a particularly strong arm, his return to prominence was highly questioned. But through rehab and meetings, he clearly had mastered the offense of new coach Eric Mangini and coordinator Brian Schottenheimer by early August.
And there never was any doubt he would beat out the other three QBs in camp once Pennington began throwing as accurately as ever.
When Pennington was hit hard or sacked, he bounced up and went right back to work. Most notably against Houston, he took a huge hit and stayed down because he had the breath knocked out of him. Well aware of the hushed crowd, Pennington pumped his fist as he walked off the field, assuring the fans he and his right arm were fine.
"Chad is a tough guy," veteran guard Pete Kendall said. "I think anybody who stands back there is a tough guy, it’s just that some guys unfortunately have been injured more than others. But that doesn’t necessarily have anything to do with toughness.
"When you talk about toughness, you have to talk about mental toughness as much as, or moreso than physical toughness. Chad is way up there; he’s a mentally tough guy. To be quarterback in this market, with the ups and downs that comes along with playing quarterback, and to go through what he has gone through, then come back and still play well, you have to be a tough guy to do that."
Pennington is the fifth quarterback to win the award in its nine years; Drew Brees won it in 2004. He is the first Jet to win.
