Wright With Another Surgery
The New York Mets announced David Wright has had yet another surgery to deal with the myriad of health issues he has had since first landing on the disabled list early in 2015:

Because of who he his, Wright came off as optimistic in his statement. It’s not just the released statements. When we see him interviewed, we may see him look more and more like a shell of his former self. Really, the only thing recognizable is the smile on his face and the upbeat attitude.
How he can continue doing that is anybody’s guess. With each thing that happens, everyone finds themselves running to Google to find out what exactly Wright had done.
I guess that as long as Wright believes in himself, we can still believe. However, as fans we can have some distance. We can be more realistic. We may never see Wright play for the Mets again.
This isn’t exactly breaking news. Rather, it’s increasingly becoming reality. No matter what the case, the only hope we can have with Wright is that he is at peace in his career even if I personally never will be.
