Figgy Better Watch Out

They were cheerleading in the dugout like a bunch of softball girls,” Figueroa said after the Mets lost to Washington, 10-4, in the series opener. “I’m a professional, just like anybody else. I take huge offense to that. If that’s what a last-place team needs to do to fire themselves up, so be it. I think you need to show a little bit more class, a little bit more professionalism. They won tonight, but again, in the long run, they are who they are.”

I am not sure if Nelson Figueroa realized that Elijah Dukes was the head cheerleader last night. Figgy better watch out, Dukes once threatened to kill his wife…and he’ll do the same to Figgy.

If you click on the ESPN story I linked above, you will read the following:

The product of Tampa Hillsborough, the same high school that sent Dwight Gooden, Gary Sheffied, Vance Lovelace and Carl Everett to the majors, reported to spring training eager to leave his troubles behind.

I am not sure what they are putting in the water in the Hillsborough High locker room but someone ought to investigate.

Gooden, Sheff, Everett, and Dukes?  With the exception of Lovelace, that is some collection of hotheads, maniacs, and criminals.

  1. I think this is hilarious. Here is a journeyman pitcher who has never made it in the bigs is talking smack about a last place team. That could easily be the Mets but that’s besides the point – who cares what they do in their dugout? Here’s an idea – pay attention to Brian Schneider, where you need to throw the ball. Or take some ritalin so you can focus.
