David Wright HBP (Head), leaves game

NEW YORK -- David Wright left Saturday afternoon's game in the bottom of the fourth inning after being hit in the helmet with a pitch by Giants starter Matt Cain.

Wright was in an 0-2 count when Cain's four-seamer struck the left side of his helmet by his ear, and the infielder immediately fell down on his stomach, where he lay motionless until team trainers rushed out. After several minutes, Wright was flipped over and was able to walk off the field under his own power, albeit with some help from the trainers.


No word yet on how long he'll be out.

He'll be out for at least a week. No chance at making the playoffs so Mets won't take any chances.

And Matt Cain tipped his cap to the fans as he walked off the field. Cain should be nominated for d-bag of the week after that. What a dick!

What? Cain was bent down almost in tears right after he hit him.

In the 8th inning when Cain got taken out all the mets fans were booing him and he tipped his cap.

Clearly Cain is the d-bag in this situation not the Mets fans. A fastball slipped. It's not like he was trying to put Wright in the hospital.

Cain obviously didn't try it, I understand the fans booing and I don't mind him tipping his cap either because he did not try that and was obviously remorseful.

Officially placed on the 15 Day DL
B-Chad wrote:Pedroia's LD rate of 20% is reason to believe he'll maintain a higher BA then Cano. It should also be noted he hits more FB's then Cano, which means that even if he posts a lower HR/FB then Cano, he should come in reasonably close to Cano in HR's
