Historically, I have not been a big fan of the WBC. However, David Wright’s performance and presence this time around is pulling me in. More than that, though, it’s nice to see him be a source of pride for Mets fans, as opposed to a polarizing figure (clutch vs. unclutch, leader vs. loser, etc.). I think this demonstrates how productive and influential he can be when surrounded by good players (albeit, the best players). Also, I love that he is garnering national attention in such a fun way. MLB is presenting him as the leader of this incredible team; this Captain America meme is starting to stick; and that’s great for him and great for the Mets.
