Let me first say that I love Jason V. (In fact I ran into him down here in north georgia over the weekend and he was super nice). But I feel that the Captaincy should be reserved for a starter as I think it's hard for a bench player to really inspire the rest of the team. The overall lack of team leadership doomed this team. Maybe in the past the talent was sufficient to allow the guys to do the things that we're now hearing about. Maybe all the chicken, beer, video games etc were happening but when they make the playoffs noone cared either internally or externally. But now with all the "news" reports floating around the team needs some leaders kicking some a$$ in the clubhouse and some new rules and some structure. Who on this team is better equipped to that than The Laser Show? He's wicked awesome on the field and his heart and desire can not be questioned in any way. I'm just wondering if the bad apples in the clubhouse are so far gone that they can't be saved even by the Muddy Chicken. I'd like to see the team elect him Captain and see if he can't get the ship going in the right direction. Say what you want about Jeter but I think he's a leader in the Yankers clubhouse and he has the respect of the other players and he squashes $hit like this before it becomes an issue. I might be naive but I think a strong Dustin P. can start to set things right in the clubhouse.
