Paul Lukas of ESPN’s Page 2 is talking about captains. Apparently John Franco was named Mets’ captain in 2001 after Turk Wendell caught a Devils’ game and wondered why the Mets didn’t have a captain.
Just think. With this lockout, how many baseball teams will now never think to name a captain?
Seriously. Think about it.
And check out Lukas’ column. Uni Watch is always a great read.
