“@newyorkmetsfans: RT if you think David Wright should be named captain of the Mets!!! #LetsGoMets” Irrelevant question
— Sean Mills (@SeanMills5) January 30, 2013
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, and MLB Betting Odds says there’s one small gesture that would go a long way to make that official — naming Wright the team captain.
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.
