Now Commenting On:

David Wright, who led the league

with 10 home runs and 29 RBI was named the National League Player of

the Month for June.

Wright also led the league with a .664 slugging


Wright batted .327 (35-107)

with 20 runs, four doubles, one triple, a .385 on-base percentage and

three stolen bases. He also tied a career record by hitting a home run

in three straight games, June 13-15.

Wright is the first Met to win the

award since Howard Johnson in September 1991.

Other Met players who

received votes this past month were Wright's All-Star teammates Jose

Reyes (.373 with 28 runs and 14 stolen bases) and Carlos Beltran (.316

with eight home runs and 25 RBI). offense to the golden boy, but I feel like Reyes got robbed here. It seemed like Reyes was on base every time he was at bat this last month, hit for the cycle and won Player Of The Week for two consecutive weeks. Maybe if he had brokered a deal for world peace while he was rounding third he may have been able to surpass Wright in the eyes of the voters...
