New York Mets manager Terry Collins said Wednesday, March 5, that he is considering hitting his pitchers eighth on occasion this season, trying to get his meat of the order more chances to drive in runs. "I think both (3B David Wright and OF Curtis Granderson) are RBI guys," Collins said. "My thought is: How do we get them more RBI chances and also give David, in particular, chances to drive in runs. It is a possibility I might try (hitting the pitcher eighth). I don't know that I will, but I might."

New York Mets 3B David Wright changed up his offseason routine this year in order to stay healthy for the long haul. Instead of focusing on speed and strength, he spent the winter working on flexibility, something he never considered very important before. "Now that you're a little bit older with some more miles on you, you have to think of a different way as far as tuning up your body for a season. I think that I've made a nice adjustment, and I'm excited to see how that plays out in a long year," Wright said.
