David Wright: Media Work At Locker Not Appropriate For “Captain”

April 7th, 2010 by Wendy Adair Leave a reply »

Ted Berg wrote this article on his blog on Monday and its true that after every game David Wright is at his locker being interviewed, this needs to change.


Jerry Manuel and Johan Santana were interviewed in the media room but the reporters camped outside David Wright's locker in apparent frustration that he was not there when they were ready for him.

There is no question that Wright is extremely accountable, good game or bad game, but I do think that he should have his interviews done in the media room, not in front of his locker.

All players need to speak to the media, especially if they are a little more responsible for the team's win or loss than everyone else, but as the "Captain", Wright should be treated with more respect and allowed to use his locker as a sanctuary.

By letting him know that he will be interviewed a half hour after the game in the media room allows him to at least shower and freshen up a little while Jerry Manuel is conducting his interviews.

This will help the interviewers get what they need, and it shows respect to a young veteran who does more than his part each day in representing the team.
