FYI, according to Buster Olney’s twitter, it was Joe Torre of all people, who made the call not to let the Mets wear the hats.
It was an edict from Bud Selig and MLB handed down earlier that the Mets could not wear the caps. That they didn’t show any balls and say “fuck you, MLB” is not just the fault of the players and Joe Torre, but goes back to the fact that the Mets are in a huge financial mess and are sort of indebted to the MLB at the moment so they did the pussy thing and decided to not rock the boat.
MLB should have let them wear the damn caps. And even if they kept the rule in place if they didn’t they could have just looked the other way when they did, fined them later and then donated the fine money to 9/11 charities.
Now everyone involved in this from the Mets to Torre to Selig all look like a bunch of douche bags.

Underrated Black Sunday! Death from a blimp at the Super Bowl!
YES! I need to make a list of awesome disaster movies. This would definitely be on it.
Anyone remember any others?
Weird and cool.
As in “Let’s have Jack’s back.” Not like, “Jack is back from somewhere.”
Anyway. As you might now, Jack is having some tumblr problems. Basically, he’s become a tumblr ghost. His hearts don’t show up. He can’t reply to anyone’s posts. He likes your posts, he really does. But he has no way of letting you know that because his shit ain’t working. It hasn’t been for at least two weeks.
This is not Jack’s first foray into tumblr oblivion. Back in November, his tumblr was deleted. Not by his own hands, but by some freak tumblr accident. He couldn’t get anything back. He had to start over. And now he’s about ready to just pack up his tumblr and go home because he’s a bit frustrated to be experiencing problems again.
Wait, you say. Why doesn’t he just contact tumbrl support?
Well, he did. He got the the auto reply and then nothing else. Two weeks. Nothing. No, “We’re working on it, Jack.” No, “Sorry about this, Jack. We haven’t figured out the problem yet but we’ll get back to you as soon as we do.” No, “Oh, forgot to tell you, Jack. The tumblrbeasts ate your hearts!” Nothing. Nada. Zilch. He emailed them again with a bit more information about the problem. Again, no response. Someone else also emailed tumblr on behalf of Jack. No response.
Listen, we know that the inability to put a heart on posts or reply to them is not an earth shattering problem. But it’s a problem that has taken almost all the joy out of tumblr for Jack, and we don’t want him to leave.
The greater problem here is the lack of response from tumblr. Granted, they probably get a lot of support questions. But two emails and two weeks without a response? That’s some kind of bullshit, don’t you think?
So here’s my plan. We all email tumblr. We all send an email to email@example.com and say “Hey, what the hell is up with Jack’s tumblr?” or something along those lines. We want Jack’s hearts back! We want his replies! We want him to enjoy his tumblr experience!
All he’s looking for is a reply. A heads up as to what the problem could be. An inkling that someone heard his request and is looking into it. That’s not too much to ask, is it? Even from a free service?
Let’s do this.
