I took this whole post from metspolice.com. He is 1000000% right in this.
Welcome to essay number 9000 about whey the Mets should WEAR THE CAPS on September 11th.
You can read yesterday’s piece about what happens ewhen you break the rules – you get a letter from Joe Torre if you break the rules (oooo scary).
You can also read my longer 2019 piece about this where I read the CBA and theorized all that would happen is a letter from Torre.
And now we have this. A team decided not to wear what they were supposed to. The Cubs blew off dopey Players Weekend and took the field in blue caps.
So once again, I say WEAR THE CAPS Mets. Come on Thor, you follow me, you don’t care what people think. Get Mr. Polar Bear behind this. Is baseball really going to have a whistling match with you guys over 9/11? I would LOVE to see that fight in the court of public opinion.
What’s going to happen to the Cubs? NOTHING. Some dude on the Cardinals took the field in a red cap. What will happen? Nothing. Maybe a letter from Joe Torre. Oooh scary.
What’s going to happen to the Mets? Torre will send you a letter (maybe), and he will call and yell at Brodie or Jeff or someone. Who cares? Actually Jeff getting yelled at it is reason alone to do it.
Mr. Thor, Mr. Polar Bear – you will get a letter from Torre. Ooooh scary. You will also be heroes forever. Here’s page 217 of your union’s CBA.
WEAR THE CAPS!
