PULLING A RABBIT OUT OF YOUR HAT

As the first weekend of June faded, the New York Mets boarded a plane in Miami headed for Pittsburgh; the 162-game Major League Baseball season offers little time for rest or reflection. It’s on to the next city.

Maybe that’s a good thing for Terry Collins and his aching, limping roster. The Mets clubhouse has morphed into a triage unit over the last month. 

David Wright officially landed on the disabled list Friday with a herniated disk in his neck. Despite the initial prognosis of a 6 to 8-week absence, Wright’s injury could lead to season-ending surgery and, more importantly, put his career in limbo.
