David Wright doesn’t care about third place, activated from DL

David Wright 1 polaroidThe Mets activated David Wright from the DL, the team announced.

Wright had been on the disabled list since early August with a strained right hamstring.

The Mets trail the third-place Phillies by three games with 10 games left to play.

“In my eyes, third place, fourth place, you’re still going home,” Wright said, when asked if he was returning to help the team catch the Phillies. “To me, it’s not that important. What’s important is that we try to go out there and win each game, to try to play good baseball and finish strong.”

Wright has repeatedly said if he’s able to play he will play, he has no interest in shutting down his season.

Here are results from a poll that appeared on MetsBlog earlier in this week…
