PITTSBURGH — Jordany Valdespin went down fighting. According to a Mets source, the volatile utilityman, upon learning he had been demoted to Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday, got into a confrontation with Terry Collins, during which he called the manager a “c–ksucker.” The source said Valdespin, in the course of his heated exchange with Collins, also tried to invent an injury and demanded to be placed on the disabled list. By the time the clubhouse opened to reporters in the aftermath of the Mets’ 4-2 loss to the Pirates, the 25-year-old Valdespin had regained composure, but had tears in his eyes. It’s hardly the first time Valdespin has been involved in controversy during his brief career. The most recent incident occurred in May, when he showboated after hitting a home run in a game against the Pirates in which the Mets were getting buried. The next day, Valdespin was sent to the plate as a pinch-hitter and got drilled in apparent retaliation. Last year, Valdespin angered teammates by wearing a white T-shirt on the team bus, in violation of the dress code. Valdespin later returned to his locker to find the words “El Hombre” written on the shirt, which was mangled.
Well. Thats one way to handle being demoted to Triple A. In Jordany’s defense, if someone sent me to play for the Las Vegas 51s, I’d probably call them a cocksucker too. Its literally the worst minor league affiliate in the history of Major League Baseball. I think if I was playing Double A ball and got promoted to Triple A Las Vegas I’d call my manager a cocksucker. There’s just no way to keep your composure or stay professional when that happens to you.
I love all the uproar Jordany fucking Valdespin has caused the past couple years. Why doesn’t he get more playing time! Why doesn’t Terry Collins like him! Because he fucking sucks and he’s an asshole. Thats why. I mean don’t get me wrong, I loved his infamous “I’mTheManRightNow!” quote. He’s great blog material. And I recognize that when you’re trotting out the shittiest outfield in MLB history, maybe a guy like JV1 should get some starts after a few big pinch hitting performances. But at the end of the day we’re talking about Jordany Valdespin. This guy absolutely sucks. He’s not gonna turn this franchise around. He’s not worth the headache. He’s certainly not even remotely talented enough to be calling the manager a cocksucker. Take a hike bro.
PS – I’m sure The City of Sin is a great place for a guy like Jordany Valdespin to grow and mature. Should work out real well.
