Remember Brian Cashman’s silly comments on Saturday about Pedro Feliciano being “abused” during his time with the Mets? They were quickly answered by Mets pitching coach Dan Warthen, who said something to the effect of, “duh, obviously.”
Well, Feliciano spoke with Wallace Matthews of ESPN New York earlier today and told him that he didn’t appreciate Warthen’s comments.
“They said they didn’t sign me because [they knew] I’m going to blow up this year,” Feliciano said. “That hurts because I like Dan. But I will come out from this injury and I will be telling him there is still a lot of Feliciano to go.”
“Asked if he had called his former pitching coach to discuss his statements, Feliciano said, “No, no, no. No, no, no. I don’t got his number or nothing. I will show him in the Subway Series when I strike out Ike Davis, and when I jump up and down on the mound I’ll be like, ‘That’s for you.'”
The first “Subway Series” interleague matchup between the Mets and Yankees is on May 20. Hopefully Feliciano is back from the disabled list by then.
