One of the features they do is "Answer Man," an interview featuring some unorthodox questions, stuff you wouldn't usually find in a normal interview. The latest edition takes on David Wright.
A few of my favorites:
Q: What about the widely held belief that you are the Austin Powers of the majors, in that men want to be you and women want to be with you?
DW: I don’t know about that [laughs]. It’s fun to be single and living in New York, playing for a good organization. I have no complaints there. As far as the other end of it, if I can take care of business on the field, then there are some nice perks that come along with a winning team.
Q: Could you tell if the monster in Cloverfield destroyed your apartment building?
DW: I did see a couple of landmarks near my apartment, but I don’t live in a real big high rise, so he might have missed mine. Fortunately, I think it was spared.
Q: Ever go up to Mr. Met and say, “Hey, buddy, why the big head?”
DW: It’s funny, trying to see him walk through doorways; he’s gotta turn sideways but his head is the same size no matter how it’s turned. He’s … he’s a good mascot.
Wright is probably one of the luckiest guys in the world. Single, young, living in NYC, rich, plays baseball for a living. What else could you want? I envy you, David.
Oh, and yes, Mr. Met is a good mascot, the best in the league, I would say.
