In the interview he talked a lot about the injuries, the injuries, the injuries. He also admitted to making mistakes when he was here (he gave a good quote, but my post crashed and I lost the exact phrasing.)
I don’t think ANYONE has been tougher on this guy than I have, but he handled himself well.
Clearly he was given talking points that HE WAS INJURED. Mentioned this a lot. A lot. Like more than Todd Frazier mentions he is from New Jersey. Matt also has the talking point now (in the August before his Free Agency) that he is healthy now. “When I was injured” type language.
For decades scientists said it was impossible, but the Mets have figured out a way to transfer information to you without charging you several dollars a ticket. This is absolutely amazing.
I wonder what brought this on? Maybe tickets are moving slowly? Maybe the Mets are just kind?
Will the Mets go bankrupt selling tickets without fees? Only time will tell.
