I concur with Shannon about how we are the first ones to make fun of the Mets when they do something dopey, but from the info we are getting how is it their fault? Why didn't Cespedes go to Rojas and let him know he was thinking about not playing the rest of the year? Maybe his agent should have called Brodie at 7 am? I am pretty sure he has Brodie's phone number with Brodie being a former agent and all. I love killing the Mets on stupid things but what I am seeing, it is all on Cespedes's camp. How did not one person know where he was?
This is from my cousin Shannon over at Metspolice.com. He basically wrote exactly what I would have and I am too lazy to write something of my own. Since he "borrows" a lot of my jokes, I am borrowing his post.
Read more posts like this over at metspolice.comYou guys know I am the first to make fun of the Mets, but I feel like the media is really trying to LOLMets the Mets on this Cespedes thing. The media seems to want to paint a picture that the Mets were being jerks putting out the statement this morning.You may not have noticed, but the media surely did, that the lineup was late this morning and there was a little LOLMets about the Mets struggling to write down nine names.Had the Mets not started Cespedes, surely someone watching TV would have noticed that he wasn’t in the dugout…..and then this would have led to WHY DIDN’T THE METS TELL US THEY DON’T KNOW WHERE CESPEDES IS?????So they are damned either way. I thought they handled it well. Seems like Cespedes handled it poorly.Anyway it’s 2020. Move on. Now maybe we can #FreeDom and get him some ABs so that we can prove that the Mets should have traded high on Vulgar Pete last off-season.
