David Wright Went Home Sick, So Why Was He Limping?

David Wright provided one of the more scarier moments in the game when he came up lame while running to first base. For two innings, Mets fans were left wondering: "Was it the hamstring? PLEASE GOD DON'T LET IT BE THE HAMSTRING!" Well, I thought it was the hamstring, and my dad thought it was the hamstring.

Game ends, Mets win. On the post game show, we wait in suspense to see what happened to David. And in the end, we find out that he was feeling "lightheaded and queasy." So basically, he needed a hotdog? They couldn't have told us that in the 13th inning so we're not freaking out? And even though people have tried to explain it to me, I still don't understand how queasiness leads to limping. Which leads me to a more important question: is David playing hurt?

If David was playing hurt, it would certainly explain this ugly slump that he seems to breaking out of. But somehow, I doubt he's hurt. Fatigued? Maybe. Tired? Maybe. Frustrated because the team has no offense and he's carrying the weight of this team on his shoulders? Most definitely.

We'll see what happens tonight when the Mets try to win their first road series against a National League team. Pat Misch takes the hill. And somebody makes sure David Wright has a pretzel before the game. They tend to make you thirsty, thus providing hydration.
