I am so glad that David Wright is back with the Mets since he is my favorite player. He has done well with the bat so far. But what has happened to his arm? His throwing has not always been the best - that is probably the biggest knock about his abilities. But in this past series, he made every play close, even those that didn't have to be.
He seems to be tossing the ball over instead of firing it over. After all, the throw from third to first is the longest one to make. And yet, it seems like he is just slinging the ball over. Now, if we had a better first baseman, I wouldn't be as worried. But we currently have a first base by committee platoon situation.
David needs to work on his throwing or down the line, he could be moved to a different position - or a different team
