Evan asked Mike to give him 2 trades that would be realistic for David Wright. Roberts pointed out that the Cards ain't trading Pujols for Wright and he challenged the big man to give him two realistic deals, to which Mike could not provide even one. The following exchange then ensued:
Mike: Almost every team has a David Wright
Evan: That's ridiculous.
Mike: Who do you think David Wright is?
Evan: He's a special player.
Mike: Special in what way?
Evan: The guy hits 30 homeruns, drives in 100 runs. He's a constant..
Mike: The guy looked like a deer in the headlights in the last week...the idea that he's the leader of the team went out the window. I don't he think he's the leader of anything..why does everybody take David Wright and throw him to the forefront, because he's white?
Mike..just please admit that you have a personal vendetta against Wright. You are so transparent with this stuff...
