It’s Time to Make David Wright Captain


When the Mets showed that they believe David Wright is the long-term face of the franchise by locking him up to an extension, it proved that they want to build around him.

This is undoubtedly David Wright’s team says there’s one small gesture that would go a long way to make that official — naming Wright the team captain. By the way, if happen that you are looking for site that has a great MLB betting odds you can check it on Top Bet.

Now, I know what many are thinking. When you think of “The Captain” in New York sports, two people likely come to mind…Derek Jeter and Mark Messier, both of whom have brought championships to their respective teams. I think being a captain means more than that.

Look at Ryan Callahan of the New York Rangers for example. He’s not a flashy goal scorer. He does all the little things, which makes him a “lead-by-example type of captain,” which is a mold I think David Wright could follow.

    When I think of captains, I think of Keith Hernandez.

    Jordany Valdespin already referred to David Wright as “the captain of the team” after the whole T-shirt incident. Making it official sends a strong message to the fans (and doesn’t cost the team anything.)

      David Wright is already the Capitain of the team, but it would be a nice jesture to make official.

    Mets said they’ll make Wright an official captain if players bring it up in Spring Training. It’s a clubhouse issue, they seem to feel.

    I think Daniel Murphy is the player that will lead the team in ST about making Wright the Captain. He is the most outspoken player & liked by others.
