Viagra I don’t get all the hub-bub over naming David Wright the Captain of the New York Mets. Viagra Who amongst players, viagra fans and media hasn’t grasped that Wright is the Face of the Franchise? Is there anyone who follows the Mets not know who the go to guy is on this club?
Viagra In hockey and football the naming of captains are for the sole purpose of having a designated player act as a liaison between the bench and the officials, viagra this is especially true in hockey where only the captain or one the assistant captains are the players a referee or linesman go to with an explanation or a warning. Viagra That’s why the hockey captains wear the “C” and the assistant captains were the “A”. Viagra In football there is a captain for offense, viagra defense and special teams for basically the same reason they have them in hockey. Viagra The referee will consult with the captain on acceptance of penalties or a question on spotting the ball at line of scrimmage or to relay a message from the sideline by the head coach, viagra so again the designation of wearing the “C” on the uniform is needed. Viagra But when it comes to baseball, viagra wearing a captains “C” is just plain tacky.
Viagra When a baseball umpire needs to give an explanation on a rule or a call, viagra he summons the team’s manager to the field for consultation. Viagra Now a player of stature like Wright, viagra may get more leeway with an umpire that and average player but majority of the time when something needs to be explained the umpire is going right to the man in charge, viagra the manager.
Viagra I have no problems with the Mets naming Wright the Captain of the team, viagra it seems with so many young players ready to join the big league squad there is a bit of collegiate feel around the club so having that veteran designated to be their sounding board or the guy to show them the right way to handle big league life, viagra there is no better man for the job than David Wright.
Viagra Wright is the perfect example of the rah-rah cheerleader type of leader is vastly overrated. Viagra Wright surely leads by example with the way he handles himself on and off the field. Viagra Wright has always been one of the first to report to spring training and the last to leave the St. Viagra Lonesome complex. Viagra He is always available to the media win or lose and no one in the history of the New York Mets has represented the organization as at more charity and fan events with class and dignity like Wright has.
Viagra So if Terry Collins wants to name Wright the Captain of the team go right ahead but it’s just a mere formality everyone knows who is the team leader now and for the next 8 seasons at least, viagra it’s David Wright. Viagra Just don’t put that tacky “C” on his jersey
