New York Mets: Asdrubal Cabrera Wins NL Player Of The Week
Noah K. Murray, USATSI


Asdrubal Cabrera’s hot week at the plate for the New York Mets landed him National League Player of the Week honors.

The New York Mets had a much better week last week, going 5-1 over the seven-day span. Shortstop Asdrubal Cabrera is a big reason why.

Overall last week, Cabrera batted .545 with three home runs, eight RBIs, and five runs scored, going through his best stretch offensively as a Met. That performance earned him the NL Player of the Week honors.

Recently coming off the DL, he has really produced as the Mets have seen a string of success. However, he left Sunday’s game with a sore left knee, the same injury that landed him on the DL.

Given that he has found his groove lately, one can only hope that Cabrera won’t be out too long.

Other than God, sports are my biggest love. My teams are the Mets, Knicks, NY Giants, NY Rangers and St Johns basketball (St. John's alumni). I especially love the Mets like crazy, more than any other team and seeing them win the World Series would be a dream come true and definitely the best sports moment. The Knicks are a close second. I also like to write, so combine that with my passion for sports equals a perfect scenario, I would love to do sports writing long term. If not that, then probably sports broadcasting, cause I love to talk sports as well. In addition to writing for ESNY, I'm also currently writing for Metsmerizedonline.
