Terry Collins: I may sit David Wright for the remainder of the season!
In a stunning development, Terry Collins stated he feels so strongly about his decision to remove David Wright from last nights game, he is considering benching Wright for the season. Terry shared his thoughts with Mets Blob:
"Look, we can't afford to let David Wright get hurt. He is the face of the franchise. I just feel if he keeps playing every day the odds of him getting injured increase dramatically. Remember when he hurt his pinky? That's because he was playing in the ballgame. It's the goddamn baseball activity that puts him in harms way. If he snuggles up to me in the dugout, like he did last night, I know he's safe. We can't allow David to be a target out there. But, that's the way the game is played and I can't have that. Jesus, they weren't gonna throw at Ike Davis - it's going to be David...and I want David to be safe. Believe you me, I'd love them to stick one in Ike's ear hole and wake him the F up...but we know that ain't gonna happen."
