“They need to help him work through his apparent anxiety in high-pressure situations … He cares so deeply that he puts enormous pressure on himself, and this trait seems to wreck him in big spots.

No…that’s not being said about Alex Rodriguez…although it sure does fit A-Rod. Actually, it’s Buster Olney writing about the Mets’ David Wright (via MetsBlog).
This leads to an interesting question…
..all things considered…meaning age, salary, off-the-field behavior…if you’re the Yankees and the Mets offered you David Wright, one-up, for Alex Rodriguez, do you make that trade?
Me? I think the Yankees make that trade in a heartbeat. How about you?
