My Issue With The Media and Wright

An article by posted on February 11, 2009

Here’s my serious problem with the media. They go to everybody for
an opinion about a topic. Why go to David Wright and ask him about the
A-Rod and his drug issues?

Wright is a member of the New York Mets. It is not his problem. If
you cannot get Derek Jeter to talk about it until next week Tuesday,
that is your own problem.

Do not bring the Yankees problems to the Mets. It has nothing to do with them. If you are going to ask a question from a player on the Mets, let it be a question that is relevant to them. Do not bring drama where there is none.

They have enough to deal with just trying to get ready for the upcoming season
and having to answer endless questions about the Philadelphia Phillies
and the two year collapses.

My problem with Wright is that he actually answered these ridiculous
questions. My answer would’ve been, “Do I look like a Yankee? No! So I
have no comment.”

Instead, Mr. Wright, as always, pulls a Jeter and plays the nice guy. He had this to say in the NY Daily News:

I think he did a tremendous job in owning up to it. I think he did a tremendous job in his apology. It was sincere.

How can you tell it was sincere? A-Rod showed no emotion. He was reading from a script. If you ask
me, it looked like he was about to laugh the first few seconds into it.
It was not sincere.

Wright should’ve just left it at:

Being that it is having to do with crosstown, I try to stay out of it as much as possible.

Beginning! End!
