Ken Rosenthal is fed up with a fed up #MetsTwitter

Ken Rosenthal is fed up with a fed up #MetsTwitter

The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal appeared on MLB Network's Hot Stove on Friday and

Rosenthal's report was about New York's discussion over dealing for Andrew McCutchen, and apparently, those on the Mets Twitter-sphere reacted...well, about as you'd expect. And Rosenthal didn't appreciate it.

As you can imagine, most of #MetsTwitter didn’t take too kindly to being called out. In fact, Rosenthal’s comments have distracted away from arguments about boycotting the team and galvanized Twitter’s Flushing Faithful in a different direction.


#MetsTwitter has always been the offseason gift that keeps on giving. It's...an acquired tatse, and has graced us fans with the full spectrum of takes:

The Good:

The Bad:

And even The Weird

But does Rosenthal have the right to tell us how to feel? Not in my eyes.

He’s not a fan. He hasn’t been through the Bonilla deferral, the Jason Bay years, or the inevitable injuries to our starting rotation. He hasn’t suffered through seasons of mediocrity, while our cross-town rivals contend almost every year.

#MetsTwitter will be the first to say it's unruly and unreasonable, but what did Rosenthal expect? Practicality? Hell no.

As fans, we ride the wave. We take what’s given to us (which hasn’t been much lately). And right now, we're angry. Rosenthal comments are probably just a flash in the pan until the next outrage. But for now, I'm compelled to say: Stick to the news, Kenny. We’ll stick to the “shriek and shrillness."
