The Wright stuff

Mets third baseman David Wright was asked by a reporter after the team's opening-day win on Monday if the victory will help set the tone for the team for the rest of the season.

Wright, understanding the realities of winning and losing apparently far better than the moronic journalist who posed the question, said, in effect: Are you serious? This is just the first game of a 162-game season. Let's not overstate its importance.

Here's hoping that exaggeration-prone sports reporters from coast to coast heard what Wright said and took it to heart.
