Probably can still play a better 3B than Wilmer Flores amirite!?

He can be our Opening Day DH.

I don't care about the cynicism. I'm thrilled for Wright.

Sandy appeared to be dismissive of Wright's return just last week if I understood him correctly (which is quite possible going by the other things he said which had been interpreted several different ways). I wonder why he didn't say that Wright was close to a rehab assignment.

It's beginning to feel like SA could be the source for much mis- or disinformation that makes its way around the horn... or at least that wouldn't surprise me at this point.

The issue for Wright all year has been that he can't play the field. This doesn't change that. If there was a DH in the NL, he probably would have made the Opening Day roster.

This doesn't contradict what Sandy was saying either, I don't think. My expectation since like May was that Wright would return in September as a pinch hitter with expanded rosters and then retire.

Welcome to the Bizarro World of the Mets, circa 2017. In a season that has been ruined by injuries, the news that a player is coming back from a serious injury is actually bad news for the team's future plans--now, they have to pay DW.

That's great for David! Would love to see him here in September even if it's just as a pinch hitter. Would be a fantastic accomplishment and give the fans a chance to, dare I say it... say goodbye?

It's sad that my first thought was 'I guess they don't get the insurance money anymore', for the rest of this season anyway.

The whole come back as a PH'er in September and then retire scenario actually sounds plausible though. If he's going to retire and have some sense of peace about it he probably wants one last kick at the can getting an ovation from the crowd.

Is he giving a comeback one last attempt before the offseason so he can make a decision on a possible retirement?

If he could DH this whole time wouldn't we have explored a trade with an AL team?
