It seems like someone posting at the New York Mets Twitter account poked a little fun at the New York Yankees' injury woes with a reminder to loosen up before their games. A tweet from the team’s official account Monday night seemed to take a shot at their cross-town rivals by posting a picture of the Mets players stretching before Monday night’s game against the Braves, with the words: "Don’t forget to stretch those quads before coming out to CitiField!" The Mets claim it was an honest mistake, realized it was creating a stir and immediately deleted the tweet. The big news surrounding the Yankees Monday was Alex Rodriguez’s expected return from the DL list being stalled by a recent quad injury. A-Rod, trying to return from offseason hip surgery, was diagnosed with a Grade 1 strain this weekend. A quad injury also shelved Derek Jeter for the second time this season after he played in just one one game. The Mets said the tweet had nothing to do with the Yankees. "There was no ill will or intent," a Mets spokesman said. "The person who sent the tweet had no idea about the Yankees’ injuries." Sure. And there's bridge spanning the East River that's up for sale too.

  • The Mets shouldn't be taking a jab at anybody, least of all the Yankees. In spite of a monumental number of injuries that have kept numerous run producing players out of the Yankees lineup this season, they are still in a race. The Muts on the other hand SUCK as usual and will not be in the post season AGAIN!!! So if the Muts front office has any common sense they'll just STFU!!!
