New York Mets right-hander Marcus Stroman responds to a recent comment made of him by New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman.
There’s some beef between the Bronx and Queens right now.
This week, a profile on New York Yankees general manager Brian Cashman was published by Wallace Matthews of Yahoo Sports. Within the piece, Cashman spoke about the trade that could’ve been for All-Star right-hander Marcus Stroman.
On Tuesday, it appeared that Stroman fired back at Cashman on Twitter.

The left column shows Stroman’s statistics, with the opposing column showing the combined statistics for the Yankees starting pitchers. The subliminal “Straight cash homie” message is a nice touch to the tweet as well.
Stroman was traded to the Mets on July 28, three days prior to the MLB trade deadline. Toronto sent him with cash considerations to New York for pitching prospects Anthony Kay and Simeon Woods Richardson. The right-hander is 3-2 since coming over to Queens with a 3.86 ERA and a 1.509 WHIP through 10 starts (53.2 innings pitched).
The Mets are all but mathematically eliminated from postseason contention. Entering Tuesday, they’re 5.0 games back in the National League Wild Card race with six left to play. New York has three games remaining in their current four-game home series against the Miami Marlins. They’ll then take on the Atlanta Braves in a three-game set at home to close out the regular season.
Stroman is set to have one last start for the Mets this season.
