Mets seemingly take jab at A-Rod and Jeter's quad injuries via Twitter

It seems like someone posting at the New York Mets Twitter account poked a little fun at the New York Yankees' injury woes with a reminder to loosen up before their games.

A tweet from the team’s official account Monday night seemed to take a shot at their cross-town rivals by posting a picture of the Mets players stretching before Monday night’s game against the Braves, with the words:

"Don’t forget to stretch those quads before coming out to CitiField!"

The Mets claim it was an honest mistake, realized it was creating a stir and immediately deleted the tweet.

The big news surrounding the Yankees Monday was Alex Rodriguez’s expected return from the DL list being stalled by a recent quad injury. A-Rod, trying to return from offseason hip surgery, was diagnosed with a Grade 1 strain this weekend. A quad injury also shelved Derek Jeter for the second time this season after he played in just one one game.

The Mets said the tweet had nothing to do with the Yankees. "There was no ill will or intent," a Mets spokesman said. "The person who sent the tweet had no idea about the Yankees’ injuries."

Sure. And there's that bridge spanning the East River which is up for sale too.

  1. What? Do they live in a bubble not to know about the Yankees injuries? Shows the difference in the class of people in that organization. I don't care what they say about A-Rod but Jeter? Jeter is one of the classiest people in Sports and for anyone to make fun of what he's gone through is just an idiot.
