Late Tuesday night, Marcus Stroman took to Twitter because he had a bone to pick over comments made by former Diamondbacks manager and current television analyst Bob Brenly during the middle of Tuesday’s contest.
Brenly, who now works for Bally Sports Arizona, commented on the Mets pitcher’s doo-rag while he was on the mound.
“Pretty sure that’s the same durag that Tom Seaver used to wear when he pitched for the Mets,” Brenly said during the telecast.
Stroman responded to Brenly’s comments, saying on Twitter, “Onward and upward…through all adversity and racist undertones. The climb continues through all!”
Stroman quote-tweeted that message, writing, “Since I can’t say it because media will turn this against me somehow…”
Stroman allowed seven hits and three runs in six innings in his start.
The Mets went on to lose, 6-5, in 10 innings and dropped to 26-21 on the year.
