David Wright was scratched from the Mets’ lineup for tonight’s game against the Marlins with a sore neck and manager Terry Collins called him “day-to-day.”

Justin Turner is drawing the start at third base in place of Wright, who started each of the Mets’ first 23 games after dealing with a rib injury during the World Baseball Classic.

Wright has hit .309 with two homers and a .942 OPS so far this season and missed just six games last year.

    For some reason, he reminds me of a young Gary Gaetti in that picture.

    Gotta love how a stiff back turns into a “neck injury”. Only in the wussiest sport of them all I guess!
