Mets to activate David Wright on the 29th to play one game at 3b.  He’s expected to retire afterwards

Update: if I'm reading this correctly, by retiring Wright forgoes the final two years of his contract.  If he had simply been placed on the physically unable to perform list he'd still get paid.

He’s a team player. I hope Zim is paying attention.

According to Wilpon he is going on the physically unable to perform list. The Mets would then keep paying him but they get 75% reimbursement from insurance.

Oh. So since it’s an insurance claim they’d need a verifiable medical reason instead of just “he’s lost it”.

Marlins are barely going to crack 800,000 total attendance for the season, if at all.

For reference, the Nats are well over 2 million and even absolute bottom of the barrel teams get about 1.5 mill.

I thought he had spinal stenosis?  If he does, that would definitely be a verifiable medical reason.

I'm sure the attendance for Inter Miami, the city's new MLS team, blow the Marlins' out of the water.

Sorry, I meant as a way to apply this to Zim.

Sox/Yanks on ESPN.   Sox can clinch.    Guess the Oreos are out of it.

There were so many commercials at the half inning that I forgot the baseball game was on.

Addison Russell has been placed on administrative leave following a detailed description of domestic abuse, written by his ex wife. Questions of abuse first surfaced a year or two ago when his ex wife's friend alleged on Instagram that Russel had been abusive to his ex while they were still married, but Melissa Reidy (the former Mrs Russell) declined to cooperate with the MLB investigation. She's since changed her mind and released a fairly lengthy blog about it.  https://lifewithmelis310373032.wordpress.com/author/lifewithmelis310373032/

Jeff Banister out as Rangers manager. Nightingale also speculating Showalter will be dismissed at the end of the year, too.

Jeff Banister was good and a good guy. Definitely not his fault the team is rebuilding.

I know a lot of players hate playing for Showalter, but he got things done with that incredible bullpen 5 or 6 years ago.
