"That can't be right," Wright said. "I don't think I belong there."
The calculations were made by the Elias Sports Bureau. They're right.
Wright is the eighth player to accumulate 1,000 hits with the Mets, the first since Mike Piazza. None of the others reached 1,000 in so few games. Piazza had the lowest total, 935, before Tuesday. Ed Kranepool is the franchise leader in hits -- 1,418 in 1,283 games. Kranepool had one at-bat in many of his games. Wright is batting .436 against the Dodgers in his career (140 at-bats). Since Wright broke in in 2004, no player has a higher average against any opponent (minimum 100 at-bats) except for Ichiro Suzuki, who has batted .444 against the Royals.
