"Mets third baseman David Wright switched back to his old batting helmet Thursday after trying out Rawlings' bulky new model. Wright used the S100, which Rawlings says can withstand a 100 mph fastball, in his first two games following a stint on the 15-day disabled list with a concussion courtesy of a Matt Cain fastball on Aug. 15.
'It's just not comfortable,' Wright said of the new helmet that will be required in the minors next season. 'The last thing I need to worry about in the box is to try to shove it on my head. I will stay with the one I used today.'
Wright had three hits and three RBIs as New York beat Colorado 8-3 to avoid a three-game sweep. The all-star third baseman went 1 for 3 and scored a run Tuesday, then grounded out as a pinch hitter Wednesday night."
Sell your Rawlings stock!
Our David apparently has little interest in paying tribute to the Great Gazoo:
