Well, for one thing, they still have tickets to sell, and in order to
do that, they need to give people _some_ reason to go out to the
ballpark. If management makes what amounts to a public declaration
that they don't care about the rest of this year's schedule, then
nobody else is going to care either.
Well, ok, you make a valid point. That said, however, do we care more
about the last few weeks of a season that is already hopeless, or do
we want to see some of the kids come up and show what they can do?
Unfortunately, it's not about what we want. It's about what the
Wilpons want, and my guess is that they're more interested in selling
tickets than planning for next season.
I would be ok with letting him sit out most of the games (as someone else

I think that's an important consideration for all of the injured
players, including Wright. From a confidence standpoint, I think
that getting back on the field, even if just for a couple of token
appearances, could offset a lot of lingering doubts for them during

That's a nice idea in theory, but outside of Nick Evans, what kids are
left to bring up? The AAA roster looks like a home for waiver wire
rejects, and the only prospects in the system deserving of any real
attention are much too young to contribute right now. Tony
Bernazard certainly hasn't left much of a legacy.
No, he really hasn't. A few other people pointed this out, I looked at
few of the rosters. There are a few bright spots, like Thole, Evans,
maybe Shawn Bowman and Tejada.
Hopefully, the next year or so will be spent getting some talent back,
since they aren't going anywhere in the short term. I really don't
the Sheffield move, unless they are planning on signing him for next
which I wouldn't object to.
Besides which, Wright would never go for that.In this case, I think the doctors have the say. So far, at least, I've
been agreeing with them for a change.
Well, yeah. I wouldn't recommend forcing him to sit if the doctors
agree that he's okay to play, though.
