10:55 AM ET 08.11 | Though the Mets still hope David Wright can return to active duty before the end of August, manager Terry Collins admitted Friday that there's a chance Wright will not play again this season. "No question," Collins said when asked if Wright might not return from a strained right hamstring. "There's nothing etched in stone. We're hoping certainly that it's four weeks. If it's five, it's five. If it's six, it's six. If he gets back, tremendous. That means the healing process and all the rehab stuff will work. But there is absolutely no timetable at all." Wright is currently taking part in a daily physical therapy regimen at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. Until he is ready to begin baseball activities -- and there is no timetable on that, either -- he will remain in New York. At some point, Wright's rehab will progress to Port St. Lucie, Fla., where he will begin daily running, fielding and hitting drills. Only then will the Mets have a more concrete idea of when -- or if -- he might be able to return this season.

Good lord. The guy is one of the best third basemen in baseball, if not the best. He will be missed.

Miguel Cabrera and Adrian Beltre may disagree.

Cabrera's obviously better offensively, but I'd take Wright over Beltre.
