Some fans and media personalities – including WFAN radio’s Mike Francesa – got all over the Mets for not backing up JV1.
Well, I guess you gotta talk about something when you've got all that air time to fill.
So, how bad was it? I can't seem to find the video.
So apparently the proper, sanctioned, official, unwritten rule is that you admire a home run, you get hit, your team hits their player, then everyone is happy. Seems odd to me, but I never played the game.
No need to hustle
As a fan, I can forgive the guy who never hits a no doubter for enjoying the rare one, a lot more than the guy who hits one every week.
The "complaint" is that the Mets didn't then retaliate for the retaliation
would you/did you drill a guy for taking a little too long to watch a home run go?
I have no problem with aiming a fastball about an inch away from a guy crowding the plate
If you can do that, you can hit any corner, will keep hitters off balance and will not be dealing with what you perceive as vulgar HR trots..
This whole thing was stirred up by the gutless "anonymous Mets" , Collins and unfortunately the Pirates.
What do you think happens to this guy?
Pretty much. You don't pose for a statue unless you actually do hit HR's in bunches. If you gave a up a HR to Pujols and he watched it. no big deal. But Jordanny Valdespin - and then tweeting about it? Please!
I get that, Bob, but that's exactly what happened. The "complaint" is that the Mets didn't then retaliate for the retaliation. It seems to me like if Valdespin got what the unwritten rules say, then the situation's over.
