The Mets all star shortstop Jose Reyes and former Met great Keith Hernandez had to be separated Sunday night after the two got into an altercation that nearly turned violent according to the New York Post. Team sources described the incident as “very heated” and said that it seemed like they were about to come to blows.
The rift started after Keith Hernandez (who is one of the teams play by play commentators) made comments that the team needs to stop babying Jose Reyes after he threw another temper tantrum. He made an error on a throw to first base and threw down his glove afterwards to which Hernandez said:
“Well, he’s got to get over that,” Hernandez said at the time, according to one transcript of the broadcast. “Enough babying going on now. He’s a grown man. He’s been around a long enough time. Take off the kid gloves.”
Jose’s been known to throw a lot of temper tantrums on the field and even more so this year since the Mets have been playing so bad but this is causing a lot of issues in New York. It was just a couple weeks ago that Jose got into it with his manager Jerry Manuel over another tantrum he threw.
Both Jose and Keith say that they got their points across and that it is behind them.
What do you think? Is Jose a crybaby or is he justified in being angry?
