Over in the Mets Lounge, we're discussing this image of David Wright from yesterday's game: Mets Lounge member "metsfan08" bring us this comment:
Notice how no one is talking about David's reaction but everyone was all over Jose the night before...
User "peachymet" responded with:
My sentiments exactly. Sorry to say, but racism still lives, and rears it's ugly head again.
It is sad but true. As noted before when Jose Reyes didn't want to leave the game, it was called a "tantrum." When Troy Percival wanted to stay in, he was dubbed a "fighter."
When Jose Reyes lifts his one finger in the air after putting his team up by three runs, it's called "showboating" and Philly announcers want someone to "put a ball in his neck." When Wright jumps up, pumps his fist and screams, no one even mentions it.
Peachy had it right, racism rears it's ugly head once more.
