NEW YORK (WFAN) – It all started this weekend when Yankees general manager said ailing reliever Pedro Feliciano was “abused” by the Mets the last few years.
It escalated after Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen responded: “That was part of the reason we decided to not re-sign him … because we knew we had used him 270-some times in the last three years.”
Feliciano wasn’t too happy with Warthen, later saying, “I’ll show him in the Subway Series.”
“I will come back from this injury and I’ll be telling him that I feel there’s a lot of Feliciano to go … when I strike out Ike Davis and I jump on the mound.” he said.
Davis didn’t seem to mind his name being thrown into the mix.
After he caught wind of it on Tuesday, Davis joked, “I mean, I did strike out how many times last year (138)? It’s not that tough a feat.”
He added, “His job is to come in and strike me out. But I’m going to make him not strike me out. Feliciano is a pretty funny guy, so what are you going to do?”
Warthen declined to comment on Tuesday.
