Chicago Cubs pitcher Marcus Stroman has been embroiled in a feud with his “friendly” teammates.

Stroman started a game against the New York Mets on May 25 and pitched eight innings of three-hit ball (one home run) with three strikeouts and two walks to earn the win. He is now 4-4 with a 2.95 ERA in 11 starts this season 스포츠토토.

Stroman’s on-mound behavior on the day was controversial, as his overexcitement and profanity after striking out and inducing an eighth-inning double play was deemed “disrespectful” to his former team, the Mets.

Stroman was traded to the Mets from the Toronto Blue Jays in July 2019 and played through 2021. Stroman, who was disgruntled at the time of the trade, was known to be on bad terms with the organization, having waived his playing rights in 2020, citing a calf muscle injury and the timing of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Stroman signed a free agent contract with the Cubs in December 2021. During his free agency negotiations, Stroman accused the Mets front office of being “racist.

According to the New York Post, after the game, several Mets players, who asked not to be identified, said of Stroman’s behavior, “What did we do to him?” and “Show him some respect. Be professional. I don’t believe that’s all you are.”

Stroman, apparently seeing the reports, posted a single emoji on social media after the game, a “shhh” pose with a finger covering his mouth, further fueling the feud.

However, Mets infielder Pete Alonso said on “Foul Territory Live” on Saturday, “If you go eight innings and give up two runs on less than 100 pitches, you can celebrate any way you want. If you don’t like it, get better at baseball. I don’t believe his Mets teammates anonymously criticized Stroman,” he said, taking Stroman’s side.
