There's a point in a ballplayer's career when they realize they can't be superman every day, running and hitting like you're making rubber cement. It takes a while to realize humanity still applies, and it's a sad day, but the only thing you can do is work with it.
Sadly, this is the case for David Wright. Guy's in his thirties, and he knows he can't be absolutely amazing every day, so he's just doing what he can. His back's failing, but he's still hitting pretty well, which sure is a blessing. He knows he's just got to be a leader, a captain, to make sure everybody stays in line.
He knows he's not Derek Jeter, but he's doing the best he can to be somebody.
I'm really proud of the way the Mets have been playing, and even if they're in 2nd this season, I hope they keep up the good work. They're a fun team, and they were a joy to watch in person last year.
Coming Tonight (?)- One of the Detroit acquisitions that's making a difference so far.
