When David Wright makes his emotional final Mets start on Sept. 29, he'll have his partner in crime next to him just like the old days.
Wright wants to start alongisde Jose Reyes one final time, and Mickey Callaway didn't hesistate to honor that request.
"Absolutely," Callaway said after the Mets' 5-2 win over the Marlins on Thursday night. "They probably both deserve that."
Between 2004 and 2011, Wright and Reyes made up the left side of the Mets infield and were the cornerstones of the franchise. They made a total of nine All-Star games,
They haven't played next to each other in years, though. When Reyes rejoined the Mets during the 2016 season, Wright had already hit the DL for the rest of that season and hasn't played since.
The last time the pair started with eachother was Sept. 28, 2011 in a 3-0 win over the Reds. Seven years and one day later, they'll have the chance to do it one final time.
