Santa David

Talk about the David Wright Goatee Watch 2006! Looks like our third baseman’s letting it run wild in the off-season. And what’s with the new glasses, David Claus?


Truly, though, who else would have been the Mets annual Santa? David Wright has absolutely become the public face of the organization (Wright Flight, anyone?), famous for his press-perfect soundbytes and flawless manners. And I’m happy to have him representing the team.

By the way? Neighborhood rumors have it that D-Wright has moved just a couple blocks west and a few blocks north of my apartment. Wonder if I’ll run into him at the local shops! There are some very good menswear stores near his new apartment building–perhaps even GQ Man of the Year worthy.

For now, I’ll leave you with this, our own dear David, talking about Barry Zito in his usual calm on-air demeanor. And in a Santa suit. I pretty much adore it.

Happy Holiday time, lovely people!



Wooing Zito

Zito_2In this inflated pitching market, Omar Minaya has resorted to an unpredictable strategy in wooing Barry Zito. Our creative and wily GM has offered Zito an unusual bonus package laden with incentives. Only one blogger has received access to this list of perks the Mets plan to offer Mr. Zito. Can you guess who?

Barry Zito’s Come to New York Incentive Package:

1. Every day, he gets a free burrito.

2. Along with packages of both Cheetos and Fritos.

3. All-inclusive luxury trips to Lido, Sausalito, and Toledo.

4. An action figure of Greedo.

5. A lifetime supply of bug spray to ward against any mosquito.

6. A perfectly tailored tuxedo.

7. A signed presidential veto.

8. A Speedo.

9. Infinite Viagra for a heightened libido.

10. A vintage WWII era torpedo.

11. His own personal valet, a genuine NY guido.

12. A pillow embroidered with his favorite credo.

What do you think–enough to draw Mr. Zito to New York Cito?



Beyond the facial hair.

Dwright_gq_1David. Let’s have a chat. Cliffy’s not going to be around anymore to guide you through the finer things in life, but I’m still here. I’ll always be here for you. So, hon, let’s talk…suits.

Virginia may be for lovers, but New York is for fashion. (And I don’t mean this kind.) We know you like to wear your casual shirts oversized, and although it’s not my first choice for you, I get it. That’s what you’re comfortable in, and it’s casual-wear, so you can get away with it, even in your beloved pastels.

But a suit, David? A suit is a man’s best style weapon. It’s pretty hard to go wrong in a suit. Suits are hot. All you need to do is find a designer you trust, and–AND–your perfect fit. This? Is not your perfect fit.

Please, D-Wright. Please, for the eyes of us ladies everywhere, just go a little smaller. The pants shouldn’t be billowing out, and the waist shouldn’t be swimming. Single-breasted is good, the color’s fine. Just tighten up your suits a little, okay? If not for the ladies, then for the team. Because I’m sure this is very important to them as well.
