A Promising Season Takes A Turn For The Worst

Will David  Wright be a Met when Citi Field hosts the All-Star Game next  July.
But Wright plans on being at the Midsummer Classic to take  advantage of the stadium’s smaller dimensions during the Home Run Derby.

“On behalf of the Home Run Derby participants next year, we really appreciate  the Mets moving the fences in,” Wright said during the All-Star logo unveiling  on Tuesday. “It would have been unprecedented to hit from second  base.”
Wright, R.A Dickey and Johan Santana were on hand for the event  before the Mets started a six-game homestand. Dwight Gooden, Mets COO Jeff  Wilpon and First Deputy Mayor Patricia Harris also were there.
The Mets  have not hosted the All-Star Game since Shea Stadium’s first year in  1964.
“I think to showcase this ballpark next year is a big thing,” Wilpon said. “I think with the fences moved in now the Home Run Derby will be a  lot of fun.”

 At this point this is the only event Mets fans have to look forward to. The Mets got off to 46-40 start by the All star Break but things have gotten ugly really fast and have fallen a whopping 14 games behind in  the  N.L East.
