D-Wright's Weird Season

David Wright, to say the least, is having a weird season. He has 64 runs scored, 21 stolen bases, and a .323 average, totally normal numbers for him.

And now here are the weird numbers: 6 homers, 48 RBIs, and 95 strikeouts. 95 Ks through only 4 months of the season. All of last year he only had 118. That means that too keep that pace he can only K 23 times in the next two months. About 40 games, 23 Ks.

Now the 6 homers...I don't know what the deal is. New ball park? Carl Crawford has more homers than him. Ty Wigginton has more.

The RBIs are more easily figureoutable (I love inventing new words). He only has 48 RBIs, yes, but how is he batting with Runners In Scoring Position (RISP)? Is he choking? It's not like him, but it would make sense. Or is he ok? Or is he doing great? Well, his average is...wait for it.... .336, which is great. Which just means that the rest of the team is just not getting on base. In comparison, as I've mentioned before, last year D-Wright had 124 RBIs, with an RISP average of .243. Almost 100 points higher in that stat, which, you would think, would bring a lot more RBIs. Let's just have the rest of the team get on base though. Reyes, the lead-off man, has been out for a while and we don't know when he's coming back. Beltran also, he's hurt and not coming back soon it looks like. That's probably related, two big guys for them gone.

B'kitzur, let's pray that D-Wright has a homer frenzy (maybe even a 5 homer game...?), he keeps his RISP average up, and his teamates get on base for him. And that Mashiach come speedily in our day.
