Marcus Stroman. Some folks are fans of him. Some folks can't stand him. Some folks are going way beyond civility as per usual on twitter. What set folks off was this tweet.
This game should have never been started. Not smart at all. Those conditions put everyone at risk. Beyond happy no players on either side were injured. Hate that I have to wait another 5 days to pitch again. That’s a miserable feeling. However, #LFGM each and every day! @Mets— Marcus Stroman (@STR0) April 11, 2021
Stroman's sentiment is correct but I just don't know why you would air it out in the public like this. I wouldn't like this if David Wright, Pete Alonso, or even Jacob deGrom. This feels like a betrayal to a lot to fans to the team you are playing for.
With the small amount that you threw today, could you come back for a regular start Tuesday or Wednesday?— Jason Bornstein (@DyHrdMET) April 11, 2021
I know players are creatures of habit and also how you have to figure out what to do gearing up to throwing out for your day pitching.
I think a lot of folks are still annoyed at Stroman for opting out last year because of covid. If I remember correctly there were pics of him hanging out down in Florida right before he opted out.I don't know if when/if they disappeared but there were pics of Stroman hanging out with about 10 people on a boat without masks super close to each other. Does he have the right to opt out because of Covid. 100 percent.
Do Mets fans have a right to not like Stroman? Yes. Is it because he hasn't really done anything as NY Met player yet. Sure. Do they not like him because of his race? I am sure some uneducated, unenlightened, folks wrongly feel that way.
