This seems to be the story of the morning concerning the bad loss of the Mets last night. A handful of players are stepping up and trying to lead this team to at least get to the playoffs. But not enough have gotten past the infamous collapse of last fall and not enough are taking leadership roles now.
The New York Times has a great write up by William Rhoden. Read it here: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/07/23/sports/baseball/23rhoden.html?_r=1&ref=sports&oref=slogin
I agree that, in my very short time of following the Mets, David Wright seems to me to be emerging as the face of the team. What a pretty face it is too.
Hopefully tonight will be better. At least I get to watch this one on TV and not on a small box screen on my laptop.
