David Wright Erupts At Terry Collins – VIDEO
This is video of New York Mets’ manager Terry Collins and third baseman David Wright having a disagreement in the dugout during their game against the Milwaukee Brewers on Tuesday.
Met pitcher D.J. Carrasco plunked the Brewers outfielder Ryan Braun, the reigning NL MVP, and with Wright due to lead off the following half-inning, Collins pulled Wright.
That led Wright to get into a verbal exchange with Collins.
Personally, I can see where both guys are coming from. If I’m Wright, I don’t want to be taken out of the game, and I think he showed leadership with his fire. If I’m Collins, I want to protect my star player, as I’m figuring if the Brewers are planning retaliation then they’d likely set their sights on Wright.
Collins explained himself during his post-game press conference.
