Wright plays Santa

Chris Girandola at, writes about David Wright who played Santa at this year's Christmas Party at Shea:

David Wright donned a new Santa suit and entertained more than 100 children representing seven schools from the five boroughs of New York City.

"[General manager] Omar [Minaya] is usually the Santa around Shea, so it's kind of neat to be able to don the outfit and assume his role for a day," joked Wright.

Before Santa arrived, Randolph led the children in several holiday songs and took some questions from the kids. At first the Mets' skipper fielded many softball-type questions until one astute seven-year-old addressed the biggest offseason drama for the Mets.

"Why don't you get Barry Zito?" asked the young fan.

Randolph chuckled and said that he hopes that wish comes true for the holidays.
