So great. Wilpons will be happy with a few more fannies in the seats to see The Captain.

Anyone that could look at a schedule knew this was the likely outcome once they couldn’t hide David on the DL without committing fraud.

So he plays and then retires or he plays and they'll see how he feels in the spring?

I think he plays, then retires.

Wright retiring saves the Wilpons money and that offsets the cost of him playing this year.

Everyone's happy and they give him an organization role and pay him something.

Or he takes some time away to raise a family then comes back to the org when Keith retires.

Agreed. He can say he worked very hard and made it back from his injuries to put on the Mets uniform as a player for the last time.

Players don't often walk away from $27M. I don't see him retiring, at least not without some sort of buyout in place.

Why would he retire?

Our grandkids will be making fun of the Mets for paying David Wright's estate $3M a year into 2085.

Because he doesn't want to have to go thru the rigors of getting his body in game shape for 162 games per year? I guess we won't know how he's really feeling at 1:45 PM today.

I think that's it. After what it took to get here and still not really be ready, his body can take only so much punishment.
