NY Mets wear hockey jerseys for trip to Toronto

The New York Mets are dressing for success— at least by Canada's standards— by wearing NHL jerseys for their road trip to Toronto where they will play the Blue Jays in an inter-league series this weekend.

David Wright— in keeping with the team's theme of dressing for its destination— was spotted wearing a "Mighty Ducks" jersey yesterday after a 9-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds.

Johan Santana— the former-Twins pitcher— honored our neighbors to the north by wearing a "Minnesota Wild" jersey while getting on the team bus with other players.  

Wright, the Mets third baseman— who had been suffering from flu symptoms— has been hotter than his temperature (or his temper after getting benched by manager Terry Collins the other night) and led a rally that turned a four-run deficit into a come-from-behind win.

Wright went 2-for-2 with three walks to raise his average to a MLB-best .411.

The Mets avoided a three-game losing streak and look like they are ready to put on the foil.
