So, The Mets Are a Bunch of Assholes, But You Already Knew That

Luis_castillo
Let’s recap:  Johan Santana ejaculated on a leg, Francisco Rodriguez beat up his common law father-in-law, and one Met openly wanted to leave the team– all within the last year.  These are facts.

Now, perhaps the shittiest of all.

Carlos Beltran, Oliver Perez, and Luis Castillo skipped out on a team visit to Walter Reed Army Medical Center.  Their excuses?

Beltran claims he had a meeting for his own charity.  [NY Post]

“I don’t know who is creating this issue, but [last] offseason I went to visit a veteran’s hospital in New York, so it’s not that I’m against it,” Beltran said. “I went with Fred Wilpon, I liked it and I wanted to go [this time]. But I had my own things to do and I couldn’t make it.”

Fair enough.  

But Perez and Castillo?  They're just jackasses.

“I don’t like to see people like that, so I never go there,” Castillo said. “Sometimes you see people with no legs, no arms. I don’t like to see that.”

“I don’t answer anything about outside the stadium,” Perez said.

Ladies and gentlemen, your 2010 New York Mets

  1. That’s funny Castillo, that’s the exact same reason a lot of Met fans give for why they don’t watch your games anymore. “I don’t like to see people like that, so I never go there,” “Sometimes you see people [playing like they have] no legs, no arms. I don’t like to see that.”
    Total dicks.

  2. So these three clowns make the following this year:
    Carlos Beltran $19,401,569
    Oliver Perez $12,000,000
    Luis Castillo $6,250,000
    Do the charity work then go home and cry about it while swimming in your giant pool of money like Scrooge McDuck.

  3. These douche bags are total pricks with no class and lack any type of appreciation or respect. “i dont like to see people like that” are you F’ing kidding me??? so these soldiers are over there risking(literally) life and limb to defend the only country in the world that people like Castillo can make millions a year playing baseball and he cant take one for the team, hell for the COUNTRY and make some wounded soldiers days. A smile a few pics and an autograph could be the hope that some of our Vets need to make it thru their recovery, they are fighting to preserve the AMERICAN WAY, and a main component of that is baseball, which you represent! “I dont like seeing people like that” are you serious!!!! You dont like see people like that, imagine living as a “person like that”…. God bless america and those who defend her and may God continue to shit into Citi field to produce the Mets.

  4. While I don’t agree with ANY of the 3 “players” here, I will defend them in this sense…It is probably for the better that they did not go as they SUCK as BALL PLAYERS, let alone as a team — the fewer Mets to go to this visit, the less the Vets had to be depressed to be surrounded by such losers…..

  5. One guy has prior arrangements, the other doesn’t do anything out of on the field acts, and the other gets queasy when he sees stuff like that. I don’t like the Mets but don’t really see the big deal, it’s 3 guys…
    And Adam how many times have you gone and visited those vets?
    And Steve S I hope that you’ve never gone to a baseball game in your life because the reason they make that much is because we commoners go and PAY to watch them play a sport. I don’t see how you can hate on their salaries when we are the ones that decide that, and plus they are taxed on those huge salaries so I hope you are employed otherwise those clowns are already doing charity work by supporting you.

  6. Phils fan, he said he doesn’t COMMENT on off the field things. Either way, you’re obligated as a player to do those type things. It’s part of their contracts. They are BS excuses for not showing up to a charity event. I’m not sure how anyone can see otherwise. I’m all for seeing both sides of an issue, but there really isn’t another side to this. Especially Castillo’s comments.
    You surely can’t be serious right? And I won’t call you Shirley.

  7. I have been a few times. And i have volunteered other times but prefer to work with kids at camps or after school programs… But I am also not a “star” athlete that makes a mint! if my team mates from work were all going, or a large majority were going then i would feel like less of a man if i didnt go. Especially because i didnt want to see people like that…. And really philsfan, if you were anything like your name and read this blog more often you would know that any philadelphia fan will and does look for any opportunity to trash the mets they are a joke of a franchise and are both soul less and heart less….

  8. Also i find it interesting that it was a team visit for US troops, and a quick baseball reference look revealed something that struck me quite coincedental… Oliver Perez-born in Mexico, Luis Castillo-Dominican Republic, Beltran(who really didnt do anything)- Puerto Rico…. not what we would call “home grown”

  9. Wow.
    Being a service man this makes me feel really good about possibly being injured in the line of duty and coming home to watch a baseball game where players openly say: “I don’t like to see people like that, so I never go there,” Castillo said. “Sometimes you see people with no legs, no arms. I don’t like to see that.”
    So if I lose a leg from an IED protecting and serving the country that YOU PLAY FUCKING BASEBALL IN, you can just pass because the sight discomforting to you. Fuck you.

  10. so three green card holder didn’t go visit the troops… big fucking deal. besides that if you were in the hospital after get limps blown off would you want to visit from the Mets who shit up the joint night in and night out

  11. NOBODY wants to see anyone, especially veterans, injured or suffering in any way, but these people risked their lives to fight for our country and these three stupid Mets players could not take the time to go visit these men and women?? We should all thank these brave people for fighting for our nation and our freedom, not avoid seeing them because we don’t like seeing people with no arms, legs, etc..

  12. Thirty guys show up and three do not and the Mets are “a bunch of assholes”?
    Come on. Don’t get caught up in the fallacy of the part and the whole.

  13. I don’t know if the entire team are assholes, but these three definitely are.
    And there’s one less asshole now that Francoeur is in Texas. Remember he had a hissy-fit about the Philles-Jays game being played in Philly as an away game because of the G20 Summit in Toronto? Even the Blue Jays were for the venue move:

    Well Jeff, now that the Gaymets are on their predictable downward slide towards last place at the end of the season, you can see that some series way earlier in the season really didn’t have all that much of an unfair advantage for the Gaymets. But it doesn’t matter to you, does it? You got your ticket out of that shit team, and that’s what counts. Maybe you’ll learn to lose your asshole attitude now that you’re on a less assholey team.

  14. “I don’t know if the entire team are assholes, but these three definitely are.”
    Well, that’s what the headline states, Mr. McGinty, and that’s what I was responding to. How many teams actually had as large a contingent of players and coaches visit? I’d say if you’re going to make a single trip to Walter Reed your litmus test of assholishness (I don’t), the Mets have demonstrated themselves to be more noble than your standard team, not less.
    “And there’s one less asshole now that Francoeur is in Texas. Remember he had a hissy-fit about the Philles-Jays game being played in Philly as an away game because of the G20 Summit in Toronto?”
    He didn’t have a hissy fit, he objected. Because it was objectionable. He said it wasn’t fair, because it wasn’t really fair. To call it a hissy fit is just an attempt to emasculate people you disagree with. As is “Gaymets.”
