So I turn on the big USA-Dominican Republic game Thursday night and the first thing I hear is, “No David Wright, but…” It turns out Wright had to be scratched from the game with a sore back.
MLB Network reports it is just precautionary, that Wright is not seriously injured. That’s good news, but I was really looking forward to watching “Captain America” take on Jose Reyes, Robinson Cano and the rest of the powerhouse Dominican team.
I guess I’ll have to be happy by watching Reyes and fellow former Met R.A. Dickey in the game. But they are no substitute for David Wright.
Later reports say Wright is suffering from sore ribs, not a sore back.
