It's been a while since we've heard the name David Wright, but it's been even longer since we've heard about the New York Mets being in first place.
The Mets put on an offensive spectacle Monday night with a franchise record eight home runs. It was the first game back for third baseman after a 115-game absence for spinal issues. Wright picked up where he left off, homering on his first at-bat.
"The entire Mets dugout lit up. It was like 'Wow. Look what just landed at our feet.' It's almost like a midseason trade because he's only played the first handful of games in April," ESPN's Pedro Gomez said.
