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.
