Wright to play Santa next year

David Lennon at On the Mets Beat, writes about David Wright portraying Santa Claus at this year's Mets Christmas Party. Not a good idea:

Risky move by the Mets allowing David Wright to be the Santa Claus at this year's holiday party for schoolkids at Shea. The last three, respectively, were Kris Benson, Mike Cameron and John Franco. All disappeared shortly afterward, and Cameron suffered that career-threatening collision the very next season. Of course, Wright won't be going anywhere. He did just sign a six-year, $55-million contract last August. But for those superstitious types out there, it's a little ominous.
