One way or the other he is going to be paid.

I am pretty sure they will work the particulars out, but it would be criminally tragic for him to not be able to one last time wear the uniform in the batters box.

That said, hope he gets 1 AB and many more.

"I continued to have shoulder pain," Wright said in a statement. "I decided to go to the doctor and get it checked out. Will make any decisions going forward after my appointment."

That statement is from 2 days ago.

I get nervous anytime this thread is bumped with "news". I'm not ready for the official end yet.

I am. We need to move on and hope he can help the franchise in other ways as an adviser or instructor.

He's done. We've known it for 18 months. I can't imagine how he ... he has to know it, too, deep down. But he... remember, this is the guy who they had to back off pregame drills in St. Lucie when he was 18 (19?) because it was killing his in game performance. His work ethic/dedication is off the charts. He probably thinks he can outwork this. I wish he could, I really do, but the reality is he can't. To those of you who think this is just about money for him, read this, and then read it again, and a third time, and as many times as you need to until it seeps into your brain that it's not.

Wright once revealed to me how he copes with severe stenosis – or, more accurately, how it’s taken over his life. Good days mean moderate pain. Bad days mean excruciating pain; it’s impossible to stand up for more than five minutes without the dull ache from the lower lumbar down through the right leg. There’s no such thing as a pain-free day.


This is a boy who grew up a Mets fan, got drafted by the Mets, made his ML debut with the Mets, has undying loyalty to the Mets, and for some reason I'll never understand, their owners. He's got no reason whatsoever to do this, he's made over $150m in his career. He could retire tomorrow and they'd give him a Bobby Bonilla esque annuity plan within 5 minutes. You know that, I know that, everyone knows that. HE. LOVES. THE. GAME.

/this passionate post brought to you by the same author who penned a similiar about Matt Harvey. The same author who clinically, without emotion, wanted Wright traded in 2013. Take it FWIW.

I think one thing all of us as Met fans can agree on is the last thing David is doing this for is the money.

Can we at least call him up September 27th (last home game) or September 24th (last home day game) to say good bye? I am all for him becoming a coach or adviser then. I think he would make a great manager too.

Yeah it sucked to read that. Sometimes the stories about the back issues make me think he shouldn't be trying to play anymore, but I miss him so much I can't help but hope he's able to play especially with as badly as he appears to want to. I can't imagine how much his shoulder must hurt if he could play with the back issues that bad but can't play with the shoulder

I like the usage of that quote here.

Yeah it sucks it's almost certainly ending for David this way but he lived his dream in every way possible. The only intangible missing piece is the WS ring but that might not be in the cards anyway.

And not for nothing but as the leader on the team David often held guys more accountable than management does (the Thor snack in ST, his comments after Harvey skipped out on a postseason workout). The Grandy article showed the softer side of DW's leadership too.

Which is why you'd ideally like him around as they apparently look to turn the roster over...again.

If he were hanging around and playing terribly ala Cuddyer, Jason Bay (both supposedly "great guys"), then its a baseball decision. As is, when he's been on the field, he's been better than the alternatives at his spot, which is why I don't see the 1 out of 40 roster spot issue as a big deal if he wants to keep trying, knowing that once the reg. season hits, he's either playing or he's not taking up a 40 man spot anyway.
