Marcus Stroman looks cool already with her. The pitcher, acquired by the Mets on Sunday in a shock trade with Toronto, tweets an old picture of himself as a young kid wearing a Metz jacket, saying, "some things had to be." excited to be known and – not for nothing – already Sinai. It wasn't his first reaction.
As news and trade confusion broke, the Blue Jays Club House was closed to squeeze after losing his home. Reporters from outside could hear something going on there – a "riot" and that someone had heard " is not happy. " They were told ominously that" there is a reason [the clubhouse] is closed. "
The Fox sisters did not have to rap at the table to judge who might be upset and why. For months, Stroman was publicly encouraged to be sent to the Yankees, and even after the trade, his father admitted that Stroman "hoped it was the Yankees." And indeed numerous reports confirm that Stroman was blown up at the club house and he upset that he was sent to Queens. Not that there is anything special about meth, mind you; he was just hoping to go to the challenger, reporting on Mail and the Sun with the specifically mentioned Yankees, Astros, and Red Socks.
Here's how Stroman describes a scene at the club house:
"The denouement was a discussion I had with some of our coaches and some of our seniors," as Stroman carefully called it in a conference call on Monday. "It was kind of a get-out date. I didn't like how things were handled during the process and that was all. I expressed my opinion. It hit me kind of fast.
"The conversation was based on how I thought things were handled and the conversation just ended there," Stroman said. "There are no hard feelings. I was just expressing my opinion. I'm sure someone will be disappointed after being here for seven years.
I'm not sure about this "no hard feelings" part, especially in Toronto. The day after the trade, the Blue Jays management did two things. First, they point out that they were trying to sign Stroman for an extension – something that the pitcher himself said a few days earlier was not true. Second, whatever the hell it is:
Please don't allow the fact that Stroman was actually the longest-serving veteran of the Blue Jays, completely overshadows the fact that he is two years older than Noah Sindergaard, the so-called veteran who will keep him in line. If this anonymous Toronto official thought this quote would say something about Stroman instead of himself, he would fuck himself.
Stroman owes the Blue Jays some thanks, in my opinion, for softening the impact of the Mets landing, reminding him that, hey, at least he's no longer in Toronto.
