I honestly don't even understand the controversy here. If you got a chance to play major league freaking baseball! - and to be a beloved star at that- would you give it up before you absolutely had no other choice? They'd have to drag my uniform off ala Rickey and Julio Franco.


It's obvious that he's finished at this point. Maybe when he's in a wheel chair (God forbid) and he's still showing up to rehab, people will realize there's more at play here than a guy who loves baseball. He's barely played at all in the last 3 years. Like I said there's a reason he's not giving it up and it has nothing to do with wanting to help the team or him loving baseball so much. I don't think the narrative that he gets paid every dime no matter what is necessarily true. I wish him well no matter what he decides because he's a good guy.


What isn't true about the narrative that he gets paid every dime no matter what?

Gene Verdino: David Wright represents everything that is good about sports — a talented, hard-working athlete who is loyal to his team and their fans. To this generation of Mets fans, Wright is our Derek Jeter — minus the championships and consistent health.
Vac: As I discovered this week, there are some cynics when it comes to Wright and his comeback dreams. All I can say in reply is: I wish you could talk to him.

"Wright is greedy" is easily the worst take in the recent history of Mets fandom, and there have been some bad takes in Mets fandom.
