David Wright disapproves of Dark Knight's media blackout

WASHINGTON -- New York Mets captain David Wright did not approve of Matt Harvey avoiding the media after Tuesday’s poor performance.

“A lot of us don’t necessarily agree with what he did,” Wright told Mike Puma in the Post. “But we take this game very personally. And when we don’t play at a level we’re accustomed to, sometimes we make decisions that we regret. ... You want to be known as an accountable player. You want to be a stand-up guy. And this is a little blip on the radar screen. Hopefully we all learn from it and don’t make the same mistake again.”

Harvey also declined to speak to reporters Wednesday. The team announced he will remain in the rotation despite recent struggles that have lifted his ERA to 6.08.
