Give This Guy A Benching

On the bright side, David Wright got 2 hits last night.

But then again, he also had his 2nd major baserunning screw up in 2 days, an error that gave the lowly Padres the lead for good, and he was 0-for-15 before getting those two hits.

Jerry Manuel should have yanked Wright from the game in the 5th after getting doubled up on a fly ball.  Wright should have gotten the Jimmy Rollins treatment and shouldn’t have been around for the 7th when he committed the error.

But he was still in the game and the Mets lost their 5th game out of the last 6–both overall and against the Padres for the season.

Is David going Tony Romo on the Mets?   Is his model girlfriend, Molly Beers, creating too much of a distraction?

All I know is Manuel better give Wright a “day off” today.
