Frenchy Calls Out Wright

By / February 23, 2010 / Uncategorized

On the Hot Foot Blog (Spring Training Edition), a quote was placed there. It was one that will hopefully inspire David Wright.

Who said it? Jeff Francoeur.

To who did he say it? Unknown.

Who it was about? David Wright and leadership role.

Here is the quote:

Whether he likes it or not, he’s at that age where he has to be a leader on this team. You don’t want to make the game an obsession. I think you’ll see a different David this year.

Well that is what every Mets fan is hoping for.

So did Frenchy call Wright out? Possibly. But I like to think of it as making him more aware of his role on this team. A favor, if you will.

I will say this. It is nice to know that players on the team feel Wright is the leader. They are just waiting for him to take on the role.

I feel sorry for David Wright to a point. He is in a catch 22. He has to realize he is a leader. If he speaks out as a leader in a place like New York, he can be crucified, depending on the level of stupidity of any statements he makes. He has been crucified on many blog sites, websites, radio shows and that includes myself commenting on this site and on my blog. If he doesn’t speak out and leads by example, which is really what this team needs, he is then said to not be a strong leader because he is not vocal. We as fans are very critical, I m pointing the finger at myself too. He is new to the role of leader, so while I agree with you that it is good that he is being made clear to his new role and that his teammates are seeming to rally around him, I will reserve my judgment on his response to that role and on his actions and words after accepting it.
