David Wright Returns Today
At the moment, we have no idea just how much he is going to play prior to Saturday, but the Mets are anticipated to make an important roster move just by activating David Wright off the 60 day disabled list. With Wright activated, Mets fans now have the chance to make the all too short good-bye to Wright. Today is an emotional day for everyone involved, and it should prove to be the first day of what will be an emotional week culminating in Wright taking the field for the final time on Saturday.
Hopefully, fans will flood to the ballpark and to their television sets to just cheer on Wright to let him know just how much he has meant to fans over these past 14 years. For those of us who will be watching, we will all watch on with anticipation of Wright getting a surprise pinch hitting appearance at some point during the game.
No matter what happens, the rest of the season is all about Wright. It’s about him getting to play in front of the fans, but more importantly to him, it is about him playing in front of his daughters. It’s about him ending his career on the field instead of in a trainer’s room. The Mets organization may not get many things right, but they got this one right.
Today, David Wright is once again an active player on the Mets roster. Today, we get our Captain back.
