In the sixth inning of today’s game, Mike Pelfrey showed everyone in attendance that he forgot to put on his big girl pants by barking at Placido Polanco for not getting out of the way of a breaking ball. Just moments later, Gary Matthews opined:
"That’s the way you’re supposed to be going into the ball.That’s why these guys lose, anyway though. They’re a bunch of crybabies, most of them. They really are."
After the game, Mets manager Terry Collins was asked about Sarge’s comments. The quote, via Andy McCullough of NJ.com
“I don't give a [expletive] what he says."
Sprinkle some more wood chips on the resurgent fire.
