Meet The Mets Dynamic Duo
All last winter, New York buzzed about the new Mets—Pedro Martinez, Carlos Beltran and more. But now they're talking more and more about the young Mets, namely David Wright and Jose Reyes. Discerning eyes are recognizing that it's Wright and Reyes, both 22, who are the foundation of this rapidly improving franchise. In his first full season, Wright was hitting .305-10-34, with power and discipline. And Reyes, after a year of persistent injuries, was batting .270 out of the leadoff spot while setting basepaths ablaze with seven triples and 16 steals. All this while forming one of the youngest left sides of the infield in major league history. Wright and Reyes sat down together at Shea Stadium to talk about growing up in the spotlight, following the Mets' draft and being all-star luggage-carriers.
