THE WRIGHT THING TO DO

Postby bigh0rt » Sun Mar 30, 2008 2:24 pm

DW not messin' around B-)
Wright, 25, cut back on many possible endorsement deals and promotional activities this year because he did not want any of that to get in the way of what he and the Mets are trying to accomplish as they try to rebound from the Classic Collapse of 2007.

“I just thought that with what happened at the end of last year and with the way that I felt personally and where I wanted to get as a team, I thought it would be best suited to go ahead and forget about that stuff and basically just concentrate on doing whatever I personally individually could do to get ready for the next season,” Wright said earlier this week.

How many potential deals have been shelved? “Quite a few, especially living in New York,” he said. “It seemed like daily things.

“I made the decision to turn away everything and let me focus on staying in a routine to get in the best shape possible and make sure to get baseball stuff done."It was the best decision, 100 percent. I think too many times it’s too easy to get distracted with these perks that come along with playing in New York than just focusing on the task at hand, especially with what happened at the end of last year.”
