Amy K. Nelson reports that Mets’ third baseman David Wright had MRI on his back and the tentative diagnosis is that he stress fracture in his lower back.  Nelson spoke with Sandy Alderson who says that Wright is getting a second opinion.

Wright has missed some time with back issues in the past week, but it hadn’t been suggested that he had anything other than mere soreness and general wear and tear.  Not that a stress fracture is as serious as it sounds. Alderson is saying that, pending the second opinion, the most likely treatment would be rest for 10 days then back to baseball activity.

    What a p*ssy!

    And I’m saying this as a frustrated fantasy owner moreso than a Phillies fan!

    Stress fracture? Probably from carrying that team for so long…

    That franchise just has a massive black cloud hanging over it. I actually thought if Dickey maintained his quality work from last year and Pelfrey pitched well that the Mets could possibly compete or at least represent well in this division. That offense with Beltran, Davis, Reyes, Wright, and a healthy Pagan should do well but it’s just one thing after the other with that team. Ohh well. I have a feeling that mets ownership would like to clean house anyway so maybe this is working out for them.

    Seems like a lot of fans owe Wright an apology. He’ snot bad, he’s a gritty tough player who playing with an injury that would have most people taking a sick day.
