Why the Mets are thinking about moving David Wright out of his No. 3 spot in lineup

In baseball, lineup spots have long been a measure of stature. A team's best hitters bats third or fourth — in the heart of the order and the best place from which to drive in runs.

Mets again to experiment with pitcher batting eighth

TAMPA, Fla. -- Manager Terry Collins said he plans to bat Matt Harvey eighth on Friday when the New York Mets face the St. Louis Cardinals in Jupiter. As first reported by the Post, that would give Collins an opportunity to use Juan Lagares as the No. 9 hitter, in a "second leadoff" spot. And it would mean a top of the order of Curtis Granderson No. 1, followed by David Wright No. 2. The Mets started the pitcher in the No. 8 slot 10 times last season.

David Wright's power resurgence continues

PORT ST. LUCIE, Fla. -- New York Mets captain David Wright may have rediscovered his power. After producing a career-low eight homers and failing to go deep after July 11 last season, Wright now has two convincing homers in spring training.
