What a turn of events that unfolded this year at Citi Field. With a new ballpark and a $150 million payroll, the Mets were suppose to finally overcome the past two late season collapses and make a push for a World Series ring. Guess the baseball gods didn't get the memo.

The thing that is getting on my nerves a little is the fact the Mets are still trying to get their players back on the field. I'm not talking about the unknowns but rather their star players that they have committed big time $$$$$$ to. Guys like Beltran, Reyes, Delgado, and now Wright.

News out today is telling us that David Wright will find himself playing sometime this week after landing on the DL with a concussion. Does anyone else in this world find this move to be completed bone headed?!?! The season is lost and you are trying to get a guy, who just suffered a concussion, to play baseball. What is going on in the Mets organization. Shut him down for the season and shut all those guys mentioned above down too. Who cares if he passes all the tests. Play on the super safe side.

We all know that shutting down all your players is not what a team needs especially since they sucked it up all season but for the longevity of the organization they have to. The fans are going to be pissed and may not come to the ballpark for the final month of the season but once school starts most people stop coming anyways, unless you are a contending team.

Taking chances on bringing back a guy who is not 1000%, yes I said 1000%, healthy is something that the Mets might regret in the future. Remember how they treated Ryan Church when he suffered a concussion. Guy was back in the lineup and then the DL and back again. Someone in the organization needs to stand up and make their voice heard.

Keeping their star players off the field is an option they can not afford to mess up.
