Dissing Mr. Met, @jasoncfry?

Have at him folks!

Don’t worry, Terry Collins said to Carlos Beltran early this week, you’ll get a day off during this Pirates series. Those legs must be tired.
"Man, I’m good to go," said the guy who is somehow, absurdly, caricatured as a me-first player. "I want to play." 
"He wanted to give me a day, but I feel good," Beltran said after his three-run home run in the third inning yesterday gave the Mets a "Pulp Fiction"-style adrenaline shot, and helped turn a seven-run deficit into an 9-8 home win over Pittsburgh. "I want to be out there. Right now we’re missing guys. I just feel it’s my responsibility to put myself in the lineup."
Collins, so frustrated the night before by the team’s lack of execution, responded with gratitude. 
"Just when you need him, he’s there for you," the manager said.

Well, this was bound to happen.

Collins apparently is well versed in ejections — 22nd of his managing career. And five times during his awful final season with Angels. - @jimbaumbach

Reporter [Unknown]: You said you liked the fight there in the 7th inning. But early on — and you’ve been waiting so long for this, and you see 6 innings go the way they were — are you starting to think to yourself at all, what have I gotten myself into here? 

Terry Collins: No, no not at all…

The question here has me completely dumbfounded. I understand the Mets were no-hit through 6 innings, so that has to be what the reporter is referring to. But is he kidding? Opening day, just 6 innings in and a manager could plausibly wonder to himself, “What have I gotten myself into here?”

There are only 30 MLB managerial jobs in THE WORLD. These guys leave these jobs kicking and screaming no matter the circumstances. Does anyone actually believe that someone of Collins’ stature — we’re not talking LaRussa, Cox, Francona or even Torre here — would have this kind of thought process UGH! Geez dude, you have the entire game to think of something to ask. Try a little harder.
