Don’t Worry, Davey. It’s May.

Picture_177_1Anyone who saw last night’s game on SNY knows how frustrated and lost David Wright is looking these days. Now, when his tongue wags out, it’s not so much in concentration as it is wandering about aimlessly. Kind of like his swing.

But take heart, D-Wright. April is over.

One would imagine the odds are slim that David Wright has ever read T.S. Eliot’s masterpiece, The Waste Land. Perhaps he’ll find it now, though, and take solace in the first line especially:

April is the cruelest month, breeding

Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing

Memory and desire, stirring

Dull roots with spring rain.

Take "memory," David. Of your old swing, your former swagger, your misplaced confidence. Mixed with "desire"–to perform up to the high standards set upon your shoulders by you, by us, by your public image, by a 50+ million dollar contract.

But with May, the "dull roots" will more than stir. They’ll bloom, and a slump will turn into something productive–something alive and exciting.

Or maybe it’s just a case of 2007 being the "Bizarro" 2006. Have you ever seen the Star Trek episode Mirror Mirror? Goatee_spockRegular Spock has no goatee. Mirror-Spock does. Perhaps the David Wright Goatee Watch 2006 record of clean-shaven = better hitting has switched around, like Mirror-Spock…and so, if the rules have changed, it might be time, David. I never thought I’d say this, but maybe you should stop shaving so much.

You know, while you’re in the batting cages. Shawn Green admitted that he escaped his spring training slump by taking extra batting practice until he literally couldn’t any more. Follow suit, Davidsan. BP. BP. BP. And then more BP. And then some more.

So that May, indeed, will be less cruel.

“Regular Spock has no goatee. Mirror-Spock does.”

LOL btw, it’s Mirror-Spock who helps Kirk, Uhura, Scotty, and Dr McCoy transport back to their regular dimension so he could get Mirror-Kirk back; so Mirror-Spock is helpful after all; think about that

Well, maybe May will be his month afterall. Cause he was was 3 for 3 last night and homered. Is it weird that I wanted to give him a huge hug after he homered? Is that bad baseball etiquette?
