BASEBALL: Wright On!

NY Magazine has a long profile of David Wright, including how he views Derek Jeter as a role model and where women stand in his life these days:

"I don't want to put them in the same category as drugs, but women can be a ... a distraction," he says. "I have to remember, baseball is the reason I have my apartment, baseball is the reason I'm on the cover of video games-baseball is what I do. I'm not saying I don't ever ... I mean, I go on dates, but I'll just never let something like that become as important as the game. Not right now, at least."

I think I will not comment on that. On the other hand, Wright appears to have lost interest in his blog, not posting since the beginning of the NLDS last season.

Well, young Mr. Wright is already the master of the BS sports cliche.

So let's just say that quotation leads me to believe he's pulling more tail than a bratty 5 year-old at the retarded puppy convention.

Hey, like Sterling Hayden, he realizes the importance of one's Prcious Bodily Fluids. Wouldn't want to get dehydrated out there.

""I don't want to put them in the same category as drugs, but..."

Yow. But, this won't come back to bite him. Some women just love a challenge, and they'll cut each others' throats for a chance at Wright.

And some drugs are better than others, after all. I mean, it's not like he was compaing women to crack. As far as I know.
