David Wright – Captain America
Last, but certainly not least, is David Wright, the Captain.
Or should I say, Captain America?
We all know Captain America doesn’t possess any superhuman feats. What he loses by way of superhuman stuff, however, he makes up with intangibles.
He’s a leader, first and foremost. He’s clean-cut and courageous. This fits Wright to a tee.
Was there ever a better scene than watching the captain pop his first and only World Series home run at Citi Field last October? His presence alone does so much for this squad and the clubhouse.
Even this season, with Wright dealing with his spinal stenosis, Captain America makes sure his team, his guys are in order and towing that winning baseball line.
Wright will forever be Captain America, despite the numbers he puts up.
