Mets Notes: David Wright Out Indefinitely, Ike Davis, Scott Hairston

Mets' third baseman David Wright, first baseman Ike Davis, and a host of uncomfortable diseases, illnesses, injuries, and an assortment of maladies better known as "Your New York Mets, ladies and gentlemen."

A (Continuing) Series of Unfortunate Events

David Wright is out indefinitely, according to Adam Rubin of ESPN. Wright is still having discomfort in his rib cage and will miss time until it heals. Here's the latest on Wright's status and other similarly unfortunate news around the Mets:

  • Adam Rubin of ESPN is reporting that David Wright is having continued discomfort in his left rib cage and will miss time in the Grapefruit League. The club is supposedly taking 'this one' more seriously following Scott Hairston's strained oblique on Saturday. Rubin quotes Wright, "In light of Scottie yesterday, I think it opened up my eyes -- I think, obviously, Terry and the training staff. You hate to see a guy go down, but it would be a lot worse if two guys go down. I think I can play. But it was taken out of my hands. Terry made it very simple for me. He told me I was not playing, at least tomorrow and Tuesday, I believe. We'll go from there."
  • Rubin also has quotes from Ike Davis regarding his Valley Fever diagnosis.
  • Marty Noble of says the New York Mets are treating Ike Davis like he has Valley Fever: "Davis said Saturday that the results of blood tests administered in New York 11 days earlier have not yet been returned, and that he has received no official diagnosis. But manager Terry Collins acknowledged Saturday the club is treating Davis as if Valley Fever has been diagnosed and the Mets are monitoring their first baseman."

"...maybe we're asking the wrong question. Maybe, instead of handicapping the odds of the Mets attaining postseason glory come October, we should ask how a second wild card can add to the club's primary objection for 2012 -- rebuilding and reinforcing the system.

Plenty of questions will turn to answers with the playing time being afforded to Daniel Murphy, Lucas Duda, and others, which will help cover the rebuilding part. The slimmer payroll and value-conscious general manager should help reinforce what the Wilpons have crippled in recent years by way of shady investments.

And the second wild card could make Sandy Alderson's job just a bit easier."
