Shocker! David Wright acquired by Pirates!

Wait until Squawker Jon hears this news. I just got this email a few minutes ago regarding huge breaking news about David Wright!

David Wright, Star Third Basemen, Acquired By Pirates
Healthy Partnership Promises a Championship in 2010

Sea Cliff, NY (April 1, 2010) –  In an acquisition that’s sure to send shockwaves through the baseball world, star New York third baseman David Wright announces today that he will be batting for team Pirates this season.  Pirate Brands that is – April Fools! 

David Wright, along with Pirate Brands, leader and manufacturer of deliciously baked, all-natural, trans fat and gluten free snacks including the iconic Pirate’s Booty brand, are thrilled to make their partnership public. 

The partnership will focus on promoting a healthy active lifestyle for families and kids.  Key elements include education around nutrition, healthy eating and exercise.  Pirate Brands will also support The David Wright Foundation, an organization founded by Wright in 2005 that promotes healthy development in kids in New York as well as in Wright’s hometown of Norfolk, VA.  In addition, a summer baseball clinic and other charitable activities supporting the local New York community are in the works.

Pirate Brands Vice President of Marketing, Eric Berniker said, “David is the perfect addition to the Pirate Brands team.  He’s a great role model for kids both on and off the field, from his work ethic and positive attitude to his healthy lifestyle.”

Wright, a four-time All-Star and two-time Gold Glove winner, is gearing up for Opening Day.  “2010 is going to be a great year – I’ve been training really hard and have made some important lifestyle changes that include making healthier meal and snack choices, like all-natural Pirate’s Booty, and taking my workout routine to the next level,” stated David Wright. 

With Wright focused on a healthier lifestyle, he talks about how he found his new “go-to” healthy snack, “I first discovered Pirate’s Booty on one of my visits to healthy eatery, Energy Kitchen in New York City.  Pirate’s Booty Aged White Cheddar was the first flavor I tried and I was instantly hooked – then I read the nutritional label and it was no-brainer from there.”

As Met fan Jerry Seinfeld would say, "But I don't wanna be a Pirate!"

Then again, considering the steroid scandals, baseball gave a whole new meaning to "puffy shirt."

Personally, I think the Mets are going to overcome all their injuries, sneak into the NL Wild Card, take advantage of another Cub choke in the Division Series, shock the Phils in the NLCS, and finally give their fans the Subway Series they've been praying for this past half-century. 2010 World Series: Mets over Yankees in 7. It will be very sweet for them to clinch it at Yankee Stadium, too -- even if it's not the original Yankee Stadium.

Now, refresh my memory, what day is today? Hee hee hee hee...

In the words of the immortal Mel (Bugs Bunny) Blanc (a Bronx native, by the way), "Ain't I a stinkah?"
