David Wright Says He'll Be Back; No Rush, Say We
It was nice to see Wright talking normally and showing no Dickie Thon/ Tony Conigliaro-scale injuries. We wish him a full recovery, and game as he is, we don't see why he should rush his return. With Wright, Jose Reyes, Carlos Delgado and Carlos Beltran all hurt, the Mets are now virtually star-free except for pitchers. As this can be nothing but a rebuilding year anymore, doing without the big guns is probably good exercise as well as a confidence builder for the rest of them. Sunday's win (heroes: Castillo, Francoeur, Murphy) was one of the more enjoyable games of the season, and we wouldn't mind seeing more like it. Whether they finish fourth or fifth doesn't matter that much to us.
