NEW YORK -- Mets third baseman David Wright will sit out the rest of the season because of a nagging injury to his left shoulder. Wholesale Magic Jerseys . Wright was examined Tuesday by doctors at the Hospital for Special Surgery, where he had an MRI that showed persistent inflammation in his rotator cuff. Wright said he will rest to decrease the inflammation and then begin a six-week rehabilitation program to strengthen his entire shoulder. "Its disappointing," Wright said Tuesday night. "But I think for me personally, making sure I end this year as healthy as can be and then do what I can, starting with this rehab program, to ensure that I will be as close to 100 per cent for spring training is the goal." General manager Sandy Alderson said Wright could have further tests, including another MRI with dye, after the inflammation subsides. The seven-time All-Star and team captain was scratched from New Yorks lineup against Colorado because of increased soreness in his shoulder, which has bothered him since mid-June. He had a cortisone shot around the All-Star break. "This year speaks volumes about his character," second baseman Daniel Murphy said after the Mets 2-0 win over the Rockies. Despite the pain, Wright has missed only 11 games, but his power and production have dropped off dramatically in the second year of a $138 million, eight-year contract. He batted .269 with eight homers -- none after July 11 -- and 63 RBIs. Wright had never hit fewer than 10 homers in any of his 10 previous major league seasons. "Im not one to make excuses and Im not going to start doing it now," Wright said. "I think that there were times I shouldve done better, I couldve done better. This season has left a sour taste in my mouth." Alderson, though, defended Wrights performance. "David did what captains do: He persevered, he gutted it out," Alderson said. "Numbers or no numbers, he did what we expected. He made a major contribution to the team." The Mets did get back Murphy, who batted second in the win over the Rockies. Murphy was activated from the disabled list and went 1 for 3 with a walk. He had been out since Aug. 24 with a strained right calf. The fourth-place Mets improved to 70-75 with 17 games remaining. They are 5 1-2 games out of a playoff spot. Jason Williams Jersey . Dwyane Wade took over in the fourth quarter. Michael Doleac Jersey .

Kerry wants to answer your emails at email@example.com! Hello Kerry, Quick question about the Emelin/Downie elbowing incident from December 12th. While Im sure it will be reviewed by the NHL for possible discipline, Im wondering about something else that happened on the play. The Flyers had seven players on the ice, 5 of which were trying to get at Emelin. Weve seen Clarkson (10 games) and Bissonnette (3 games) suspended this season for leaving the bench to enter an altercation. Watching this play, it looks like Grossman comes directly from the bench to the scrum and heads right after Emelin. Heres my head count: #9 – Downie – On ice injured.#5 – Coburn – Tending to Downie # 19 – Hartnell – Scrumming# 32 – Streit – Scrumming# 44 – Timonen – Scrumming# 8 – Grossman – Scrumming# 14 – Couturier – Scrumming None of the officials on ice noticed, or reacted to it. No one was ejected and I havent heard anything about it by the pundits this AM. Whats the procedure or protocol for something like this? Should a defensive pair of the Flyers expect to hear from the NHL offices? I think Bissonnette (if not Clarkson) may be interested to know. Thanks Luke Luke, Thank you for the very astute analysis and resulting question in the aftermath of Steve Downie lowering his body posture to play the puck and being struck in the head with an elbow delivered by Alexei Emelin. The whistle was blown once Montreal gained puck possession in front of Carey Price as a result of the perceived injury sustained by Downie. Paul Bissonnette and David Clarkson were suspended under Rule 70, the basis of which is that no player may leave the players bench or penalty bench at any time during an altercation or for the purpose of starting an altercation. For a suspension to result, the player that left the bench (other than through a legal line change) must become actively involved in the altercation. Thursday&nnbsp;night in Philadelphia, players were legally allowed to come onto the ice from the players bench once play was stopped and since a potential altercation (scrum) was not yet in progress. Al-Farouq Aminu Jersey. Braydon Coburn left the bench and went directly to Downie in advance of Flyers athletic therapist Jim McCrossin arriving on the scene. Coburns defence partner and alternate captain, Kimmo Timonen appeared in the camera shot to question the referee after the minor scrum involving Emelin and Scott Hartnell had been dispersed by the linesmen. At no time did either Coburn or Timonen become involved with a Montreal player. The Flyers defensive pairing of Mark Streit and Nicklas Grossmann were on the ice throughout the play and at the time of stoppage. Grossmans involvement in the scrum was very minimal and if anything, he appeared to act as a peacemaker. It is important to note, Luke, no penalties were assessed (nor should they have been) as a result of this minor scrum and therefore no altercation officially took place! If we hypothetically apply the scenario that an altercation did develop on this play, Coburn and Timonen would still not be subject to Rule 70 (Leaving the Bench) so long as they did not become involved in the altercation and ultimately assessed penalties. What is really important to note in this situation is that linesman Scott Driscoll reported his version of the elbow infraction to both referees during the commercial timeout and the correct call was ultimately made. It was clear from the camera shot that Driscoll witnessed the infraction from his blue line position in real time and, as the closest official to the incident, Driscoll looked back toward the referee to see if he had seen the infraction. Since neither referee reacted to the illegal contact, another missed major infraction would have resulted. I offer kudos to Driscoll for stepping up and making the correct call on this play. This is the "safety check" protocol which I wrote about in a recent column. Thanks to Driscoll, the process worked to perfection in Thursday nights game in Philadelphia. ' ' '
