    Chicken before the egg. He has to get hurt and spend a significant time on the DL first before they recoup that % of his salary. By that time, the only way for the Mets to acquire a 3rd baseman is in trade.

    His salary for 2018 is to be paid by the Mets at this point. The Wilpons aren't going to spend for another 3rd baseman if there is a chance they have to pay Wright next year and not the insurance company.

    60-day deductible which was met a long time ago. But it resets the second he gets placed back on the active roster which would have made it very expensive for the Mets to bring him back as a September call up.

    I hope he doesn't come back. Not because I don't want him here, but because none of you deserve him.
    I love David Wright and what he has done for this team. But he's been a complete non factor for years now and with his injuries piling up badly, it is incredibly unlikely he will ever be a major factor for the Mets again. It's just a sad fact of a great athlete whose body has broken down.

    The Mets need to move on at 3rd base, irrespective of what Wright can or cannot do to come back.

    Don't worry. He's got this.

    Two years. He played a key role in 2015.

    I agree that the team should act as if he's not returning. But I also think fans should treat him better. Mocking him and telling him to go home already is just disgusting.

    David Wright is confident he'll be back in 2018

    Well I certainly don't feel I'm knocking him by feeling strongly that he has little to no chance of being a real productive 3rd baseman ever again.

    He's a guy who I truly root for as hard as I root for anyone. A good person and a model athlete in so many ways.

    It's just realistically over for him. And even if it somehow isn't, it's time for the Mets to act as of it is.

    Don't worry. He's got this.
