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?

“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.”
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
