Marcus Stroman told reporters after Wednesday’s win over the Mets that he didn’t see it as a revenge game against his former team, but some of his reactions said otherwise.
As Stroman delivered eight strong innings of two-run ball to shut down his former squad, he broke out in celebration and even pounded his chest as he faced the Mets dugout following an inning-ending double play.
According to Mike Puma of the New York Post, players in the New York dugout took notice, and didn’t care for Stroman’s celebrations.
“What did we do to him?” one Met asked, per Puma, while another added, “Show some respect. Be a professional. It isn’t all about you.”
Stroman was with the Mets for three seasons, though he didn’t pitch in 2020 after opting out of the COVID-19 shortened season. He said it wasn’t a revenge game, but it seemed like it had some extra incentive while the righty was on the mound.
