  1. "...the Mets' phenomenon is nationwide, according to Major League Baseball, which pegs the Amazin's as the hottest team in terms of merchandise sales in the entire country." FANS TAKE WRIGHT TURN By RICHARD WILNER (NY POST) July 2, 2006 -- New York baseball fans have found a new Mr. Right - David Wright, that is. The Mets' handsome, 23-year-old third baseman has dethroned perennial favorite Derek Jeter as the city's most popular boy of summer, according to sales of jerseys and T-shirts.... And thanks to Wright's supporting cast - shortstop José Reyes and recent additions Carlos Beltran, Carlos Delgado and Pedro Martinez - the Mets have now pulled up alongside the Bronx Bombers in merchandising power.... In fact, the Mets' phenomenon is nationwide, according to Major League Baseball, which pegs the Amazin's as the hottest team in terms of merchandise sales in the entire country. "The Mets are really the perfect storm, with hot young players like Wright and Reyes, proven stars like Pedro and Delgado, with the team performing superbly on the field," said Howard Smith, the head of MLB licensing.
