• Mets Punt Puma

    Posted by on April 28th, 2014 · Comments (5)

    I just saw this from Saturday -

    Instead of a jubilant clubhouse with loud music and happy players after Friday’s walk-off win, the doors opened to silence, empty, spinning chairs and no Mets.

    Apparently angry about an article in the New York Post on Friday about Bartolo Colon under the headline “LARDBALL,” the players would not talk to the media until Post writer Mike Puma left the clubhouse. Puma was asked to leave and did so without incident. Within a minute, several Mets appeared in the clubhouse. The team would not comment on the incident.

    Can you imagine what would happen if the Yankees tried a stunt like this? Then again, Brian Cashman has never responded to my requests for an interview…

      Try blackmailing him – it’s worked in the past…

      Why? I think it’s good that the 24 other guys in the clubhouse are closing ranks around their teammate. Tabloid writers should be allowed to say whatever they want but there’s nothing wrong with a little solidarity.
