I love how his team mates stood up for him....
The Mets would not speak with the media postgame Friday (Walk off win against Miami) until Post beat writer Mike Puma left the clubhouse, the Daily News reported. Wrote Kristie Ackert and Justin Tasch:
Apparently angry about an article in the New York Post on Friday about Bartolo Colon under the headline “LARDBALL,” the players would not talk to the media until Post writer Mike Puma left the clubhouse. Puma was asked to leave and did so without incident. Within a minute, several Mets appeared in the clubhouse. The team would not comment on the incident.
The first paragraph of that game story read:
If the umpires searched Bartolo Colon’s neck for a foreign substance on Thursday, chances are they only would have found peanut butter.
Other than for one abysmal afternoon in Southern California, the rotund right-hander has given the Mets exactly what they would have expected for two years and $20 million.
