NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Sandy Alderson is a funny guy. That much we know.
But maybe the Mets general manager chose the wrong targets when he cracked wise about WFAN morning show co-hosts Boomer Esiason and Craig Carton, who spent a good portion of Wednesday’s show discussing whether the team’s batting order has been coming from the front office.
After insisting to reporters that manager Terry Collins fills out his own lineup card, Alderson took a swipe at the “Boomer & Carton” show, prompting responses from Carton and colleague Evan Roberts on Twitter:
Carton fired some more rounds on Thursday morning. He said Alderson isn’t exactly on his level, which makes this whole thing pretty uncomfortable.
“I would rather, frankly, have someone who has actually achieved something in his New York sports career take a shot at me and the Booms, even tongue-in-cheek, because that way we’d be playing on the same field: successful people at their chosen craft having fun at the expense of other successful people at their chosen craft,” Carton said.
