Should Wright come back this season?

David Wright said he was embarrassed to go on the disabled list with a concussion and vows to return again this season. His target date is Sept. 1, at Colorado, when he’s eligible.

Wright said he feels fine and is symptom free after his headache cleared.

WRIGHT: Should Mets shut him down?


“I’m sure I’m going to play again this year,” Wright said. “I feel like I have a lot of energy and my mind’s clear and I feel good. And, that’s the most important thing.”

Actually, the most important thing is he stays that way.

People handle injuries differently and there’s no guarantee Wright will experience the same problems as Ryan Church, especially since the Mets are taking an aggressive treatment approach and immediately putting him on the disabled list.

Wright could very well play again this season without incident. Then again, he could play again and have something go wrong. Right now, there just seems no purpose to it unless Wright has some underlying confidence issues about getting back in the batter’s box.

Right now, I just don’t see the point.

  1. John –
    The difference here is that David now is under medical care and will have to satisfy the doctors’ criteria before he is cleared to play baseball again. I think it’s a good thing.

  2. Wright will make a pain of himself to ensure he is back this year. That is my bet. I saw something interesting at Metsblog, they are reporting that Wright is Dissapointed with Reyes for his slow recovery. I dont think this is going to be the last we hear of this. Maybe Manuel should have scapegoated Jose instead of Church.

  3. I think it’s really out of his hands at this point. When the doctors say it’s ok, then he’ll be back
