David Wright: Leader? Next Team Captain?January 17, 2011
I received a number of responses to this tweet (see below the video). In just seven seasons with the Mets, Wright ranks in the top 10 all-time in 10 offensive categories for the Mets. In this video post I elaborate more on David Wright and ask the question: Is Wright a leader? Will he be the next team captain of the New York Mets? What do you think? BTW – for a history of Mets team captains go here and to read what fellow Mets blogger Ceetar has to say on this, go here.
MrMetKevC - you just can’t anoint a leader , Leaders lead by example and others will follow. Either you got it or u don’t
metsfanmurph - I think David Wright has to be the actual leader of the Mets before he is made captain. I don’t want a fugaze captain.
nymets945 - I dont think this year but I def would in future
xDanTanna - probably not this year w/ the C. Once there is more turnover roster wise & Wright signs a new deal. I could maybe see it then
mattclausen - I can see that happen. But I’d like David to start dogging people. I want to see him be the leader
aaguero9 - Not a leader! RT @ontheblack: Why not? RE: Wright RT @PSLToFlushing: @ontheblack I don’t think they’ll ever put a C on him #mets
CharWright5 - ahh, I sit corrected, lol…but honestly, don’t see why they wouldn’t. He leads in most categories & gives advice to rooks
Mediagoon - @Ceetar @ontheblack didn’t @metspolice name himself the captain of the team last year?
ZekeO73 - well, if they don’t, you gotta wonder what’s the point of being the “face” of the #Mets? Is it a “pretty boy” status?
Ceetar - I wondered that last year. It’s beyond time.
FakeMattCerrone - Honestly, dont you wish it could have been titled “Getting to Know Cliff Lee” instead?
SouthernMetsFan -They need to RT @ontheblack Why not? RE: Wright RT @PSLToFlushing: @ontheblack I don’t think they’ll ever put a C on him #mets
PSLToFlushing – I don’t think they’ll ever put a C on him
