Jordany Valdespin quits Dominican team

Adam Rubin: “In fairness, Jordany Valdespin got upset because Ronny Paulino pinch-hit for him.”

Here’s MLB Nation with details of the ex-New York Met’s latest spat with authority:

Infielder Jordany Valdespin has decided to leave his team, Tigres del Licey, of the Dominican Winter League, reportedly infuriated after being pinch-hit for in a playoff game this past weekend. The news was first reported by Dominican radio show Grandes En Los Deportes (Spanish Twitter link), co-hosted by ESPN Deportes’ Enrique Rojas.

Valdespin hit only .167/.316/.612 in 108 regular season at bats for the Tigres del Licey, accumulating 7 extra-bases (3 homers, 3 doubles, one triple), although with zero stolen bases, which comes a little bit as a surprise given that speed has been the most talked-about skill of his.

(Apparently they mean 167/316/296.  Don’t do that.)

Obviously the Mets embittered this fine young man and sent him spiralng down a path of self destruction.

As I grew up, my mother often blamed my 2nd grade teacher for my disposition, saying I had been a very agreeable young boy up till his class, so instead of me being an ####### it was his overbearing teaching that damaged her sweet young boy.
