A stretch of road in front of the stadium where he began his Hall of Fame career has been renamed in honor of former New York Mets catcher Gary Carter.
Wright isn’t just “Captain America” or Mr. Met or the fourth captain in franchise history. He has a chance to go down as the greatest player in franchise history.
“This is probably one of the proudest days of my career so far,” Wright said. “(I’m) honored and very proud to be on the short list of guys that have been captain of this franchise. For me it’s a dream come true, to say the least.”
The superstar third baseman will likely be named the fourth captain in franchise history before the season begins on April 1, according to a report.
Today is a day to feel good Met fans–your franchise player will be here for eight years.
It’s hard to believe that it has been over a quarter of a century since the 1986 Mets captured an entire city with a World Championship, but I was thinking a lot about that season this week.

In an attempt to sound like he knew what he was talking about, Boomer attempted to read some medical jargon off his computer screen, but fooled no one.
Manager Joe Girardi said Thursday it’s time for everyone to move forward, and he is happy to have Jackson back.
“God gives us many holes in our body,” Bert Blyleven said Wednesday morning. “And he just spoke out of the wrong one. That’s the way I look at it.”
We thought that peace had returned to the Bronx. At least until Reggie Jackson spoke up a few days ago.
Just like “Manny being Manny” was used for years to explain the antics of former Red Sox star Manny Ramirez, the Mets legend explained to the Buffalo News that “Reggie is Reggie.”
Reggie has a special talent with his venom. He couldn’t just go after Bert Blyleven and Phil Niekro. He had to attack The Kid, just as he had to attack Thurman Munson back in the day.
Reggie has now been banished by the Yankees until the time is “right” for his return. But all he did, with respect to A-Rod, is tell the truth.
Let his banishment serve as a wake-up call. If Reggie Jackson wants to continue being associated with the Yankees, let him learn a thing or two about human decency.
The Yankees want Reggie Jackson to steer clear of the clubhouse and team events following his pointed remarks about Alex Rodriguez and several former stars, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press on Monday.
