I for one do not see ANYONE of the Mets starting Players jumping up and being the leader of this club.
What I see is guys looking around and at each other instead of taking the lead.
Delgado is the Man who should be the vocal leader of this club.
He however has NEVER been that anywhere he has been.
Beltran is another who could possibly be that but again it is not something he has never been and never will be (I don't think).
Wright I think is in between a rock and a hard place , while at times I think he roots he is also I believe having a hard time about taking the rains of this club because of Delgado and Beltran.
The closest thing this club has had to a leader was Loduca- he was the one guy who left his emotions on the field.
The Yankees were smart they put a "C" on the chest of there leader and there are no questions on who the leader is.
I don't think the Mets can bring anyone in who could take over the role as leader because of the before mentioned players.
Another thing I thought of is Johan on days he pitches is without question the leader of the team~ problem is he only pitches every 5th day.
If you look back at the 86 Mets they had 3 leaders that come to mind
Hernandez~Carter & Knight were all leaders of that club they all played EVERY DAY like the season depended on it...... Passion and Fire and that is something I have not seen yet in the early stages of the season.....
Hopefully someone or a few guys will start to play with fire and passion.
For the record I think Sheff should have run over Albert yesterday...
Please no more mr. nice guys from this club~ Time to play to win....
