If he is unaccepting of the place in his life that everyone here has conceded is the case, then the Mets need to be prepared to protect their business. Is this a cold way to look at things? No doubt. But again, this is business, and we're talking about a significant portion of the budget.
The thing is if he doesn't accept his place in life as you suggest the only thing they can protect is a roster spot because if they release him they still have to pay him and that doesn't help the budget by one red cent. While it may make sense from a business perspective to release him from a P/R standpoint it would be a disaster. The media will fry Sandy and the Wilpons for doing it. And then you probably have lost Wright as an ambassador or possible future coach.
It has been fun to watch the Fang/mjjm debate unfold but this is not an easy situation by any means.
