NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — It’s been a troubling few days for Mets outfielder Jordany Valdespin.
Then, on Saturday, the Pirates hit Valdespin intentionally in retaliation. No Mets pitchers retaliated back, nor did Valdespin’s teammates get off the dugout steps to defend their talented second-year player. According to reports, Valdespin was very unhappy with how the situation played out, and he proceeded to throw a tantrum in the clubhouse after the game.
On Monday, during WFAN host Mike Francesa’s rant about the Mets’ early-season ineptitude, he took issue with how the Mets dealt with the Valdespin controversy.
