The Mets finally got something right yesterday when they put third baseman David Wright on the disabled list with post concussion symptoms. As you know, he suffered a head injury in Saturday’s game after getting hit in the helmet by a Matt Cain pitch.
After a trip to the hospital, Wright was at home during yesterday’s game. It looks like they learned something after Ryan Church‘s concussion, then being flown around the country, then playing poorly for the rest of the season.
It’s possible that Wright could miss the rest of the season according to Jerry Manuel’s comments. Not that it matters anymore because the team is out of the playoff chase.
You can hear Mets GM Omar Minaya’s press conference announcing the move below:
Basically, there’s no reason to go to Citi Field now unless Johan Santana is pitching. If you’re thinking about buying tickets for a game, don’t bother. The team that the Mets are fielding isn’t competitive anymore with the injuries that they’ve sustained this season.
If you need a Mets fix, stay home and watch them on TV. This team isn’t worth paying the price of a ticket for.
