WHO WERE THOSE UNMASKED MEN LURKING IN THE METS DUGOUT LAST NIGHT?
Mets third baseman David Wright, insists he will play for the Mets again this season although he admits that time is running out.
Wright, who has been on the disabled list since Aug. 3 with a strained hamstring, returned to New York from Florida on Monday to continue his rehab and was in the dugout last night with fellow injured teammate Matt Harvey.
Wright has yet to run the bases, but says that he is progressing fast enough begin running the bases and return to the team before the season runs out.
“I think I’ll be back at least for a larger chunk of the remainder of the games,” Wright said. “That’s kind of the goal, and I haven’t really even thought about not playing those.”
Meanwhile, Matt Harvey told reporters he will see Dr. James Andrews on next Monday to get a second opinion on his partial UCL tear in his right elbow. He continues to cling to the hope he can avoid surgery.
“Everybody’s different, so you never know,” Harvey said, according to Marc Carig of Newsday. “Everything feels great and I still feel very optimistic.”
Look, the fact is that these two players are not mere mortals like you and I…
