Since yesterday was the 10th anniversary of the 9-11 attacks, the Mets wanted to wear commemorative caps last night in support of the New York City police and fire departments. Nice gesture. Too bad it was shot down by the powers that be in Major League Baseball.
Come on! Name one thing wrong with what the Mets wanted to do. What harm would it have causes? None.
Baseball can be so stupid and self-defeating at times. Too many times. Here is just one example.
The Mets should have worn the caps anyway and told baseball to shove it. Just pay the fine if baseball would have had the nerve to fine the Mets. Then again, if the Mets did get fined they probably couldn't afford to pay it.
