David Wright leading teammates in charitable fantasy football

David Wright is among a handful of Major League Baseball players turning fantasy football into charity.

Wright will lead a charity fantasy football draft Aug. 27 at Citi Field, allowing fans to compete against Mets players in a live draft and play against them throughout the NFL season. He, Dillon Gee, Matt Harvey, Daniel Murphy and Jon Niese will each compete in a separate division, with space for 11 fans in each division.

“I try to do as much charity work as I can, and obviously I really enjoy fantasy football, so it seems like the best of both worlds,” Wright said. “I appreciate Adam thinking of me to represent the New York market. It should be a good time.”

Fans can purchase the right to manage a team for a $3,000 donation, and can bring along a co-manager for an additional $1,000. Yet another optional $1,000 allows fans to select the division in which they will compete.

Proceeds will go to the Ronald McDonald Houses in Long Island and New York, the Mets Foundation and Big League Impact.

The latter is the personal charity of Cardinals pitcher Adam Wainwright, who is organizing the event throughout baseball. After launching the inaugural event last year in St. Louis, Wainwright called star players around the league this year to expand it. That’s where Wright comes in.

League managers in New York will be invited to participate in a live draft at Citi Field, with complimentary food and beverage available. Managers will also receive autographed memorabilia signed by all participating players, photos with Mr. and Mrs. Met, VIP access to batting practice, a behind-the-scenes tour of Citi Field and tickets to that night’s game against the Braves.

More information is available at bigleagueimpact.org/events/wright.

“It’s an easy sell, because you’re talking about hopefully a lot of money going to four really, really cool causes,” Wright said. “They were really excited to be a part of it.”

Cardinals 3, Mets 0: Three Up, Three Down

It may be worry-time for an offense that is simply not clicking.

Three Up
1. Dillon Gee:
Give Gee credit for not cracking in the fourth inning, when the game easily could have spiraled out of control. After a so-so start to the season, Gee looks to be very much back on track.

2. Gonzalez Germen: Germen has developed into a real catch for the Mets, who have leaned on him in varying situations this season. His ability to pitch multiple innings has proven invaluable.

3. Eric Young, Jr.: On a night when the Mets struggled to hit with any shred of consistency, Young reached base twice. It was the best offensive night of any Met.

Three Down
1. David Wright: Wright punctuated his 0-for-4 night by striking out looking as the potential tying run in the ninth. We’ll chalk this one up to a rare offensive blip.

2. Curtis Granderson: The strikeouts are piling up for Granderson and so is every other type of out. His career-long slump now stands at 0-for-22.

3. Jose Valverde: If the Mets had any designs on mounting a comeback, Valverde dashed them by walking the leadoff man in the ninth and allowing a critical insurance run. Valverde has given up at least one run in five of his last six outings.

Mets 5, D-backs 2: Three Up, Three Down

The Mets swept the Snakes to complete a 6-3 road trip through Atlanta, Anaheim and Phoenix.

chasetvs

Three Up
1. Dillon Gee: 
I wish Terry Collins had given Gee an opportunity for a “Maddux” — a complete game in less than 100 pitches. Gee was well on his way to one through seven shutout innings, with just 72 pitches.

2. Anthony Recker: Given far more opportunities than he received a year ago, Recker has done nothing but produce. Both his offense and defense appear much-improved over last season.

3. Eric Young, Jr.: Young remains hot, with another hit, a walk, two stolen bases and a run scored Wednesday. He is making a believer out of those people — myself included — who considered him a poor fit for everyday leadoff duties.

Three Down
1. Jose Valverde: Back-to-back homers to open an inning, even in a non-save situation, are never good things for a closer. Valverde’s last two outings have both been real struggles.

2. Kirk Nieuwenhuis: One day after his explosive season debut, Nieuwenhuis settled back to earth with an 0-for-4 afternoon. He is the leading candidate to return to Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday when the Mets activate Chris Young from the disabled list.

3. Kyle Farnsworth: This is a more legitimate “Down” than yesterday, though Farnsworth did paint the inside corner with a nice pitch to retire Eric Chavez in the eighth, wriggling out of a jam of his own making.
