Marcum Cops An Attitude When Asked About MRI


This from ESPN New York:

Mets starter Shaun Marcum visited the team doctor on Tuesday, according to a source.

Marcum started Monday against Arizona, and was seen in the dugout rolling his neck and pointing to his shoulder area. He told reporters after the game that he was fine.

Marcum was evasive following the Mets’ 9-1 win over Arizona on Tuesday when asked whether he underwent an MRI.

“That’s for me and the club,” Marcum said. “I don’t know why you guys think you need to know everything.”

That’s quite the ‘tude for the team’s highest paid pitcher who is a disappointing 1-9 with a 5.03 ERA this season. I wonder what he told Sandy Alderson last January when he asked him how his shoulder was?

By the way… ESPN also reminds us that Jon Niese (shoulder), who has a partial tear in his left rotator cuff. Niese is scheduled to undergo a follow-up MRI on Thursday. I can think of a million other things I’d rather be doing on the 4th of July then going for an MRI….
