Jerry Manuel said in his post game comments that David Wright appeared to be fatigued tonight. He had one error in the game, and was charged with a second before the official scorer changed the call to a hit.
I’m not sure if Wright is fatigued or just going through a bad patch right now but it couldn’t hurt. Manuel specifically said in his comments that he wanted to avoid the Mets regulars resting during home games but he feels this is necessary.
Wright is hitting well below his career batting average and slugging percentage:
2008: .275/ .370/ .471
Career: .307/ .386/ .525
