In a year that's been ridiculous enough for the Mets, it seemed somewhat fitting that the team's plan to protect David Wright in his return to the lineup would be to stick him in a bizarre, ill-fitting, double-padded helmet that makes him appear as though he were from another planet, in addition to being the butt of all jokes from his own, and the opposing team.
It's good to have Wright back in the lineup, oversized helmet or not, though. It's not going to change the fortunes of the season (and can't even solve the mystery that is Mike Pelfrey, but that's another story for another blog), but at least we have something to hang our (oversized) hats on. Maybe this will become Vogue, given Wright's status.
Probably not, though.
