David Wright is expected to have another X-Ray taken on his back today. Obviously, there’s no timetable for him, and there won’t be until the tests are completed.
It bothers me it took so long for him to be diagnosed with the stress fracture. Blame him for putting the tests off and the Mets for not being insistent. There’s no reason why he played another month in discomfort.
Meanwhile, Wright reportedly has spoken with owner Fred Wilpon, and said: “All is well. I think it’s been well documented that I enjoy playing here and I hope I can be doing that for a long time.’’
Trade rumors are part of the game and they continue to swirl around him and Jose Reyes because of the Mets’ financial problems.
Trading Wright might bring back several prospects in return, but the loss of what a healthy Wright can do on the field and the marketing of him is hard to measure.
