David Wright to have an MRI
This just worries me. Not because he’s going for the MRI, but how he’s not sounding “positive”. I had to see Wright battle through many injuries, scattered through 10 years, and he always says something like “I hope I’ll be back before the end of the week” yet yesterday he said “Hopefully I just get a cortisone shot and give it proper rest” not at all hinting to a short term return. Luckily it’s his left shoulder, or his non-throwing shoulder (even though he’s not a pitcher, playing Third Base requires an accurate and efficient arm.) However, I imagine diving for balls or making great stops isn’t easy with an ailing shoulder.
It’s no secret that without David Wright the Mets will need to make a roster move and it would make a hard task in being contenders to basically having no chance.In a slump or hitting a stride, David Wright is the Captain of the Mets, and it’s more than a title.
