In the stands, they were anxious.
On the field, #5 quietly prepared.
In the stands, they booed the training staff.
On the field, the face of the franchise confidently took batting practice.
In the stands, they worried about a 2009 repeat.
On the field, David Wright gave the crowd reason to smile.
With the Mets fanbase teetering on the brink of revolt, Wright hit a two-run homer off Josh Johnson in the first inning of the home opener. It turned out to be all the offense needed to secure a victory. Please tell me again that this team lacks leadership.
