According to a story in today’s Daily News former Met utility man Joe McEwing is in regular contact with David Wright and thinks that umpire Jeff Nelson made the correct call the other day on the controversial baserunner interference call. The story ran a couple of funny quotes by McEwing on the subject:

Apparently McEwing said to Wright:
