A quote, via David Lennon:
"I hope that anybody who cheats get caught," Wright said. "Maybe its me being naïve, but I think baseball is clean. You would have to be either very desperate or flat-out stupid to try and beat the system now."Wright went on to say that A*Rod is a better player that he is.
Seriously, this guy is the face of the franchise, and for exactly that reason he will not (cannot?) be the leader. He is the guy to always come out and say the right things when asked, but he won't be the guy to say the right things when needed.
He's too naïve, if you will, to jump into that roll. As great of a player that Wright is, I just don't think he has that leadership capability, something the Mets have lacked.
