More Mets woes: Wright out another month

NEW YORK -- At least Sandy Alderson still has a sense of humor.

It's gallows humor, yes. But these are the Mets.

"Maybe we'll have David [Wright] back for [Johan] Santana's first start," the Mets general manager said at the end of another typical Mets Friday night.

Alderson had just announced that Wright, despite no more tests, will now be held out of all baseball activities -- "essentially inactive," he said -- for another three weeks.

That means that Wright, who has already missed 2 1/2 weeks with a stress fracture in his back (which the Mets originally hoped would cost him only two weeks) will now be lucky to be back by the All-Star break. The Mets would like to think that Santana, recovering from shoulder surgery, will join them sometime in late July.

Alderson admitted he was surprised by the setback for Wright, given the lack of any new tests and given that Wright is, as he said, "asymptomatic."

"We had hoped he'd be cleared for baseball activity," Alderson said. "But this is something that needs time to heal."

Even the three-week timetable is no guarantee for Wright, as Alderson said doctors plan another X-ray of his back at that point. Even when Wright is cleared for baseball activity, he'll need time to get ready to play in major-league games, since by then he'll have missed more than a month.

It was more bad news at the end of another bad day for the Mets, who for the third time in four days turned a late-inning lead into a loss, this time 6-3 to the Braves. Making it even worse, Francisco Rodriguez gave up the three ninth-inning runs, giving him 22 games finished (with 33 more to go to trigger a $17.5 million option that the Mets can't afford).

Also Friday, injured first baseman Ike Davis said he has no idea when he'll be able to return.

And shortstop Jose Reyes committed an error on a routine play in the eighth inning, allowing the tying run to score.

Just another day for the Mets.

I agree, the Mets young players have stepped up in many cases.  Now if only they had some starting pitching beyond the consistency of Mr. Gee.

Just another day for the Mets.

I wonder if Uncle Fester will write an article on 6-0 Dillon Gee out dueling Jurrjens. Nah, that wouldn't fit his Mets are a disaster on going thread.

Note to baldy... the Cubs, A's and Twins have worse records and all were expected to contend, unlike the Mets. How about writing about them? Nah, that doesn't fit his hatefilled, unfunny monologue.

Here's something for baldy to chew on besides ribs, chicken wings, potato chips and pork rinds:

Dillon Gee 6-0- 3.33 ERA

Justin Turner .313-23 RBI-NL Rookie of the Month

Dan Murphy .303- 19 RBI

Ruben Tejada .302

All of the above were either not with the team Opening Day or on the bench and not expected to do much. Seems to me that shows this team has players stepping up and despite losing Bay, Pagan, Wright, Davis, Young, Beato and Buchholtz, this team still is only 4 under.

I guess tonight was just another day for the Mets.
