David Wright Rips Into "Unclutch Mets Fans" Who Failed To Vote Him Into All-Star Game

David Wright will be going to the 2012 Major League Baseball All-Star Game next week, as a backup. Despite leading all NL third basemen in votes for most of the year, Wright was overtaken in a late surge in fan voting by Pablo Sandoval of the San Francisco Giants. Speaking to reporters before tonight's Mets-Dodgers game, Wright uncharacteristically voiced his displeasure with Mets fans who he feels failed to come through in the clutch.

"They choked, plain and simple. Having a votes lead in April and May is easy, but when the pressure was on in June, they wilted.  It just goes to show that despite all the accolades people throw at Mets fans, they can't be counted on to come through in the clutch."
Wright then questioned the fans heart and desire.
Where was the grit? Where was the passion? Where was the grission? I think that's a word, right? They had a lot of success early on in the year. A no-hitter. R.A. (Dickey) mowing down batters night after night.  I think they got complacent. They lost focus. Suddenly they couldn't be bothered to go on their computers and vote for me 25 times a day. I don't want to say the fans have no heart but you can't argue with the numbers.
When asked if there was anything the fans could do to redeem themselves Wright simply said:
When someone fails at something once, the only logical conclusion is that they will always fail in a similar situation. How could I ever trust them again?
