David Wright Is A Silly, Silly Man

I want some of what David Wright is smoking:

"We're expecting to go out there and win the National League East and go deep in the playoffs and win the World Series," Wright said, a day before Mets pitchers and catchers were required to report to spring training. "That is the expectation I've gotten from the guys who are here early, and I [expect] this team is to get back to where we are winning the National League East." (courtesy of the NY Post)

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!! Seriously, dude? Win the National League East? Win the World Series? I almost feel bad laughing because Wright almost seems like he's serious about this. Somebody needs to check him out and make sure he isn't still suffering from post-concussion syndrome.

Not somebody on the Mets training staff though. They might end up accidentally killing him.

Of course it's silly. There isn't much he can really say though. I wonder if he's dying to get out of Queens or if he likes it there.

I would imagine he wants to get out. There is no commitment to winning in that organization.

As a veteran and team leader, I would expect Wright to be a little more honest about the state of the team and express some disappointment at them not getting help through free agency in their rotation and lineup, but if he wants to just sit there and say cookie-cutter stuff like he did, that's his right.
