Thanks to Dan Biederman at CubbySwagger.net for showing me this video of New York Mets pitcher Joe Smith (no, not the former NBA #1 draft pick out of Maryland Joe Smith) losing his cool in the outfield of Wrigley. Memo to Mr. Smith, yes, the people in the stands heckling have an annual salary of about 1/100,000 of whatÂ most major league players make in a week. But when youÂ returnÂ fire on the fans, you are certainly not above the people that came to see you perform. You knew coming into Wrigley Field that it would be full of surly and semiretarded Cubs fans. Cub fans getting drunk and instigating confrontation? This is not news to anyone.Â Then again, you’re a Met, so you exist mostly to be a punchline for David Letterman monologues anyway, plus you have to play all your home games this season in a gigantic steel and concrete toilet.
Take heed when playing this video: you’ll hear the word “shit” a lot and the person doing the “play-by-play” is awfully boring, dull, and Captain Obvious. His commentating is so bland and banal, you’ll long for Tim McCarver….ok, maybe it’s not that bad!Â
