PLAYERS: David Wright
TEAMS: New York Mets

Injury Report: Mets 3B David Wright has rib tear

David Wright’s left rib cage injury has been diagnosed as a muscle tear, but the New York Mets third baseman said he’ll be ready by opening day. This sounds a little scary. Even though they say Wright’s going to be ready for opening day, I think all Mets fans have heard something like this before.

Doug’s Dugout: Holy Kervokian, That Didn’t Take Long!

In Doug’s Dugout today, it’s “deja vu all over again,” with the news that David Wright will miss this week due to a nagging rib injury (but last week he had a great day in the weight room-cue the applause). It’s only March, but what Mets’ fan is not a tad alarmed? This is (already) getting monotonous with injury news rushing in each day. How many times has “day to...

Now Is Not The Time For Mets Fans To Overreact

Remember, it is only Spring Training. It is only March. It isn’t August or September. Now, what do I mean by that? It was reported this morning that David Wright had an ultrasound-guided injection of a cortisone shot. It was also reported that Tim Byrdak will have surgery done on his meniscus. Byrdak should only be out up to six weeks from what reports are saying, and yet Mets...

Spring Notes: Thoughts On Wright, Reyes, Gee

First it was going to be a game or two, then at the end of this week, then next week and now David Wright hopes to be ready by Opening Day. Knowing these are the Mets, why didn’t they just throw Opening Day out there from the outset. Why did it take them so long to send him to New York for this latest diagnosis of an abdominal tear? Why does this stuff always seem to happen with...

David Wright Tears It Up In The Wrong Cage

The Mets doctors said Johan Santana would miss a start or two.  That was a year ago.  He’s still working his way back.  The Mets doctors said Jose Reyes would miss a weekend series in 2009, he missed three months.  The Mets doctors said Carlos Beltran would miss a game in 2009; it took him two years to come back.  The other day someone asked me for money for Doctors Without...
