The Captain is on the deck… Oh, how I thought I’d never hear those words again… Luckily, this time I don’t have to drop whatever it is I’m doing and come to immediate attention. But the Mets’ captain wants your attention… He has a message for you… He’s all in and he still loves “The Plan”. “I’m all in for this organization,” Wright said told reporters on Thursday. “Everybody has said with the money coming off the books, with the job that our minor-league development has done, we have some valuable pieces and some money to spend. I’m obviously expecting this team to be a lot better next year than we have been in previous years.” Sounds like Wright is drinking the Koolaid doesn’t it? Or does he simply know something we don’t know? Do you believe Fred Wilpon shares his most inner financial thoughts with David Wright? Last year, Wright kicked in $8 million of his own money, interest free, in the hopes that it would be invested in the team last offseason. It wasn’t. Payroll
