THE TOP 10 REASONS D. WRIGHT KICKED ASS ON LETTERMAN

letterman.0

10) He dressed up for the occasion, abandoning his usual pastels or funky-striped-untucked-button-down for an actual suit. (However, he might want to talk to Beltran, the Mets’ very own sharp dressed man, about a good tailor.)
9) He was delightfully nervous, instead of cocky, but it wasn’t awkward
8) He showed some personality, unlike the bland blog
7) He was a good sport about the earlier ‘betting on sports’ joke
6) He handled Dave’s joshing about The Tongue gracefully, even blushing just enough when Dave said, “I bet that comes in handy on the road.”
5) He came across as sincere – we like to bemoan how he talks in baseball cliches and soundbytes, but NYC is a brutal media town and a young kid can follow some structure or get eaten alive. He managed to not sound too much like a soundbyte machine last night.
4) The story about his brothers calling him after the bare-handed catch was awesome: “Good thing you didn’t use your glove.”
3) Good grooming: He managed to avoid LoDuca’s metrosexual eyebrow mistake even if there was a tiny bit too much hair product in evidence.
2) He managed to not say anything that would result in a phone call from either Jay Horwitz OR Cliff Floyd the minute he walked off that stage

And finally, the Number One Reason D.Wright Kicked Ass On Letterman:

1) He’s David fucking Wright, and he’s OURS, and god willing Omar isn’t going to let him go anywhere, ever, and he showed the world that a rising baseball star can be confident and a Nice Guy instead of being an arrogant dick. (No names, really, no names.)

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT!
