David Wright sits because Manuel is afraid Bazardo has no idea what he's doing

Hey, remember when David Wright got hit in the coconut? Jerry Manuel acknowledged that David Wright was out of the G161 lineup because of Wright's "phobias" and that he didn't know whether Bazardo was "a control guy."

"Just being careful for a guy coming off a beaning such as he had. It's a different experience for him, a different test. You try to protect that going forward. I'd feel better if he gets through it without a setback."
