Wright reflects on awful ending

Postby bigh0rt » Fri Apr 04, 2008 11:52 am

“To me, a leader is somebody who can bring all that together, get everyone on the same page no matter what language you speak,” Wright says. “That’s the beautiful thing about baseball. No matter what language you speak, no matter where you come from culture-wise, you’re here to achieve a common goal.

“Like it or not, you’re around these guys for six or seven months. You might not like everybody. But you better respect everybody. If you’re a good leader, a true leader, the way you play the game — being unselfish, giving yourself up for the team, only worrying about wins and losses — people buy into that no matter what language you speak, no matter what color you are. You play that way, guys respect that. They say, ‘I want to follow in those footsteps.’”

Chemistry, Wright says, wasn’t the problem last September.

“It’s a misconception,” he says. “We had pretty much the same core group of guys last year as we had the year before. But all of a sudden last year, (people were saying) we had problems in the clubhouse.

“It wasn’t in the clubhouse. It was performance.”
