    If you don't think a teammate wearing another team's hat doesn't piss off your current teammates you are kidding yourself.

    It is one of the ultimate stupid things for an athlete to do. And for a rookie trying to establish himself it is unconscionably stupid.

    Overreaction???? Sure but that's just the way it is in team sports. Keith doesn't believe you should talk to the opposition. Vspin is a dumbbell if he cannot see that. And since he is that dumb and cannot seem to hit…trade him.

    Your comparison is about two businesses competing for a market share. This is about a guy wearing a popular 59 fifty hat with colors on it to match his outfit.
    Make no mistake about it, baseball is every bit as much a business as cola companies competing for a market share. Valdespin wasn't doing his employer any favors by being photographed in a competing team's hat.
    "Mr. Martin Tanner, Baritone, of Dayton, Ohio made his Town Hall debut last night. He came well prepared, but unfortunately his presentation was not up to contemporary professional standards. His voice lacks the range of tonal color necessary to make it consistently interesting. Full time consideration of another endeavor might be in order."

    Valdy is plain immature. He probably doesn't see it that way. He is proving to be as childish as one Lastings Milledge.

    There is nothing wrong in buying several styles of hats as long as
    the Mets logo. Naivete rules here.

    The owner of the Mets record for most pitch-hit HR's in a season is working himself off the team.

    This is sooooo not a big deal. It's the off-season. Valdespin works for the Mets from February to the end of September. He can do whatever he wants in the off-season.

    It's just Jordany's way of saying thank you to Miami for helping keep the Mets out of last.

    In all seriousness, it's just a hat. There are guys who own every hat of every team. He likes the look of it, he likes how it matches his clothing, he can buy it. I really see nothing wrong with it. He plays in the MLB, so maybe he buys all of the teams' hats and wears some on certain days. Who knows? Just let him do what he wants, as long as it doesn't get him in trouble.

    Just imagine you, the employee, caught in public after business hours innocently wearing a competitors cap and you bump into your boss, let's say at the supermarket or movie theater.

    I'd like to be a fly on your shoulder and see how you tell your boss if it happens to come up in conversation, "Well, uh, it's my personal time and I can do what I want."........ That's right, in your mind you did absolutely nothing wrong, but not in your employer's brain.

    Your boss more than likely, just smiles at you and makes small talk, but is mentally etching in his brain, you wearing the boss's hated, #1 competitors cap and you burning in hell........

    Brilliant move Slick. You are a zombie, but don't know it. You're essentially the walking dead. It's just a matter of when you will make another Einstein (no disrespect) move.....

    You'd better look for a new job immediately, if not sooner. This is about using common sense. In today's world of social networking there is little privacy.

    I can understand guys in college or younger not fully comprehending this, because many of you might not have ever had full time employment and responsibilities, which is just natural for that age. You're idealistic. I get it. There is nothing wrong with that. It's actually great.

    But in the real world and in today's economic times when jobs, especially for those still unemployed after, lets say, 2+ years are few and tough to find and more difficult to get would probably say, "WTF!".

    The guy is making big bucks, granted he is immature and arrogant. However, he took the pics. Well, Mr. Valdespin, you just photographed yourself looking like your dead from the neck up.......

    Yeah, it's not that big of a deal. However it is yet another sign of stupidity on his part. He's a bonehead.

    No, it's more like a McDonalds employee going to Burger King with his/her friends when he/she is not currently working and posting a picture on his/her Twitter or Instagram.

    I think it's amazing that Cameron Maybin went into "Lids" to accessorize.

    Knowing the overall *shape* of an idea, argument, situation requires as many facts, models, opinions as you can take/make to see a whole.
