Leadership By Example

NEW YORK - APRIL 05: David Wright #5 of the New York Mets rounds the bases after his two run home run in the first inning against the Florida Marlins during their Opening Day Game at Citi Field on April 5, 2010 in the Flushing neighborhood of the Queens borough of New York City.

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.
