Maury Allen: Mets Are Wimps

I've never heard of Maury Allen, but according to his bio he was a New York Post sports columnist for 28 years and has authored 30 books. In this piece (via BBTF), he criticizes the Mets for being wussies, giving it the old "back in my day, men were men!" approach. Here's a sample: The latest to go down for the count was All Star third baseman David Wright who took a pitch on the cocoanut (sic) and is now resting comfortably on the Mets disabled list. Yeah, screw that Wright guy. He only got hit in the head by a 94 mph fastball. Talk to me when he's hit by a 103 mph heater courtesy of Nolan Ryan. I'm guessing Maury Allen would only be satisfied if Wright was resting uncomfortably on a bed of nails. While speaking with my father recently about Jim Rice's own version of this concept, I asked him if I too would one day deliver "back in my day" soliloquys. He responded: "Yes, you will. No matter how much you think you won't, you will."
