Just what did Jerry Manuel mean when he compared David Wright to Ryan Church?
“David is a different animal,” Manuel said. “How he is made up is a little different than, say, Ryan Church. That’s not to say one is better than the other, but they’re different.”
This came after Wright said he wanted to give playing a chance before going on the disabled list. The Mets mishandled Church in every instance last year, and the implication the outflelder was afraid to play hurt, when in fact, that’s all he did.
