Marcus Earl Stroman is currently the pitcher for the Chicago Cubs. He previously played for the Toronto Blue Jays and New York Mets. As he says goodbye to the Mets, Stroman claims that Mets fans called him the N-word and even sent death threats.

The pitcher has been unleashing on his former employer, the New York Mets on Twitter recently. Stroman says he is quite happy to be leaving the Big Apple to join the Chicago Cubs. The reason behind Stroman’s happiness is the freedom from the awful treatment he received from Mets fans.

Marcus Stroman opened up on the alleged awful treatment he received from fans during his 2 seasons with the Mets. “Endless death threats, being called a n***** often, hearing black lives don’t matter, and playing for a front office who didn’t care about any of that.” Stroman tweeted. Stroman says he will go into more detail on his podcast when the time is right.

Marcus Stroman is also giving himself props for how he dealt with the horrible situation. The pitcher says he was able to persevere and do his job despite how he was treated. “Still dealt on the mound through all of that! 🗣🤷🏾‍♂️” he added. Stroman’s sportsmanship is surely commendable.

Stroman previously said on Twitter that he wanted to be back with the Mets next season. This was back in November, things quickly turned sour since then. The All-Star says he has also taken issue with the Mets’ front office hires among other decisions.
