Mets Manager Buck Showalter Discusses MLB Punishing Mets, Not Other Pitchers

A day after serving a one-game suspension following pitcher Yoan López throwing at Phillies hitters, Mets manager Buck Showalter discussed how he feels the team has been treated unfairly by the league — yet tried to fix his focus forward while refraining from sharing his full views on the matter.

“I’m worried about the game today. We’ve moved on to St. Louis, ”Showalter said. “It’s funny, we’re the guys getting hit and we’re the ones getting punished. Think about it, it’s kind of strange. Believe me, I have some personal, private thoughts about it. It probably doesn’t do anybody any good to air it. ”
