All along I’ve been concerned about potential longterm effects to Wright’s back, but if there is no arthritis I think this Dal stint may be the best thing for David’s career.
For once he wasn’t in the middle of a Met firestorm. The kid has been carrying the weight of the franchise on his shoulders for years. Everything Mets points to him at all times - except now he’s finally gotten a break, forced to sit, watch and think about how he approaches the game on/off the field.
So maybe, just maybe Wright returns and gets back to simply playing ball and having fun.
All told the Mets are in a great place right now, the fans aren’t booing and the media doesnt hate them. Recent years has produced ugly, negative, controversial teams but under Collins there’s none of that.
Instead we’ve got a scrappy squad the fans are actually liking and rooting for.
I’m just sayin’
It’s 100 degrees today !
