Again, I don’t bring this topic up to be mean or jerky and I hope I am wrong. But I think fans and much of the media are in denial about the reality of 2016, and I think that reality is Flores at third base.
Here’s a tweet from Len Berman, a genuine nice guy.
A candid David Wright telling us he doesn’t know if he’ll be able to walk on any given day. https://t.co/mhXO2gwpbG

Read that slowly.
That’s terrifying. As I’ve said repeated times on the podcast I do with Jason Fry, I worry about David Wright the human being, never mind the baseball player I watch on TV.
While on the topic, I have been predicting among friends that David won’t make the trip to Kansas City. I don’t know the exact major league rules but something something extended spring training something something excuse bullpen help something something. I may be wrong. I hope I am wrong. I just keep looking at a two game series in KC and wonder if he’ll go.
