It appears that only a few details remain before the Mets name David Wright the fourth team captain in franchise history. Team officials refuse to confirm until all plans are finalized, but a person aware of the process said that Wright would want to speak with teammates before officially accepting such an honor. Also, it has not yet been decided whether Wright will wear a “C” on his jersey, such as former Boston catcher Jason Varitek, or simply receive the title, such as Derek Jeter. Wright will likely receive the designation before Opening Day, although one friend and teammate of the third baseman speculated that the third baseman’s current rib cage injury might slow the process. “There is a chance he might not want to make it official until he’s healthy,” the teammate said.
