From the desk of: HEAD-BUTTING MR. MET
NEW YORK METS: You Haven't Earned The Right To Glare At Anybody!
Hey! Just shut up and pitch! That goes for Pedro Beato, and now more vehemently, for Tim Byrdak.
The Mets can't have two pitchers now pointing fingers at Josh Thole. How about having command of your pitches first. I know Coach Terry took care of this in a stern way after Wednesday afternoon's game. But had I been catching and Tim Byrdak stared me down like that, he would have suddenly become unavailable for the next day.
When you've done something credible as a relief pitcher, then you might have a leg to stand on and then maybe you can stare in at the Mets' catcher. But as a team mate, that crap doesn't fly; not on a team I was in charge of. WHO ARE YOU? And what have you done? A washed up pitcher who never had an ERA below 3.00 and who never could average less than four walks per nine innings is going to glare at Josh Thole? No! If I was running things, he'd have been cut right there because we're losing with him, so we can lose without him as far as I'm concerned.
No malcontents allowed!
