The end of an era
David Wright is one of the classiest players I have covered, if not the classiest. None of us can even imagine how hard he has worked to get back on the field, and the frustration he has endured. Here’s hoping his final days with the #Mets give him the closure he richly deserves.

Happy #DavidWright gets to go out on his terms. He deserves it. He sits with Mike Piazza as the true #Mets stars of my lifetime. Big part of the fun of the 2015 World Series run was watching David enjoy it. He, like the fans, had been through the 06-08 pain. Thank you David.

David Wright is tearing up at his press conference.
“It’s truly been an honor to take the field with you, and serve as your captain,” Wright said to his teammates.
“To the fans, words can’t address my gratitude.”
