Wilmer Flores

There's no crying in major league baseball -- unless a player just found he was traded in the middle of a game.

That's what happened to NY Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores who learned he was traded to the Brewers during Wednesday's game against the Padres.

The 23-year-old Venezuelan -- who signed with the Mets when he was only 16 -- burst into tears when word of the impending trade filtered out onto the field.

Normally players who have just been traded are pulled from the game so they can break down in tears in the privacy of the team locker room.

The Mets leaving Flores in the game did not sit well with Twitter.

By the 9th inning, Mets manager Terry Collins was trending on Twitter, and he quickly earned the distinction as the most hated man in baseball.

Collins was less than sympathetic during the post-game press conference when a reporter asked why he didn't take Flores out of the game.

"I've been sobbing in the 3rd inning before. No one takes me out of the game," Collins said sarcastically. "I don't give a sh*t what happened," he added. "We gotta play! And that's the thing…. I'm sorry if he's upset."

Later, CBS Sports reported the deal to trade Flores had fallen through.

But maybe that was the Mets's attempt at damage control?

      Looonngggg time lurker... I just wanted to say to Sandy how rude it was for you to go on on nakeya the other day. We're you on your period or soemthing? I have come here for many years to read the comments. I love how everyone was like family and discussed their issues and lives. That is what separated you from all the other blogs. Get it together. Goes back to lurking.

      Hello. I was very suprized to read this. But thank you for your support. It is appreachated. God Bless.

    • harley_quinn2.0

      I'm sorry this is funny as hail man. In major league sports, trades are a common occurrence. It's just business, you still getting paid, grow the eff up. FOH!

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      Good Morning Roses and lurkers. This right here....I don't know much about baseball or the rules and all of that, but I would think that if your going to tell someone your trading them, why keep them in the game? What if they start messing up to spite you, because they are angry about the trade? And really, they handled this all wrong. Very unprofessional I think. Tell the players before or after the game. Not right in the middle. Who's mind is going to be on trying to win after that?! shame.

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      Is it the common practice to tell the players during the games? (real question because I don't know)

    • MisTaken

      What post was this?

    • MisTaken

      I could laugh or say well he is getting paid anyways so suck it up. But then I thought about it. If you got fired on your job they normally pull you ASAP. They don't let you go back and keep working normally. They say this is your last day go pack your things or your things have been packed and they deactivate all of your stuff. Imagine if you had to go back to work in a high pressure situation and be cool. That's messed up. But hey professional sports isn't normal. GM All

    • luVn_liFe…

      At least he has some true guaranteed money. In sports it's a cruel biz.

      nobody cares thoughts are.. “I don’t give a sh*t what happened,” he added. “We gotta play! And that’s the thing…. I’m sorry if he’s upset.”

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      Ok so can we talk about this real quick (NOT a personal issue) But for yall on IG, did yall see how IG was going in on lil mo last night?

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      Hey! Morning

    • harley_quinn2.0

      That was out of line what that woman said

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      Lil Mo or someone posting a comment? and what did the comment say?

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      Hey boo!

      Hey!

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      Hey booski!!! again lol

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      I seen it. Here's my thing, some of the things that were said were out of pocket like calling her BD a bum etc. But you have to admit even though she didn't "ask" what celeb does that. You don't think ppl ask to send Beyoncé and other pregnant women stuff. Just seemed thirsty to say Paypal and gift cards.

    • harley_quinn2.0

      I saw the one where Mo posted a pic of her stomach (she's pregnant) and someone commented I don't understand how you got like this. You had songs with Fab how the eff did you get here?

    • MisTaken

      So. Went back and read. WHET? Hijacking? *closes housecoat* No more Takens stories frfr. Glad I been keeping quiet..She was like

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      Oh I did not see that. But I am confused. How did she get like what? Pregnant? Because that has nothing to do with her work. I just don't like that she is telling fans to send her money. But it's her life, she can have as many babies as she likes.

    • MisTaken

      Yes please..Lil Mo Post.. I need the education

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      GM.

    • harley_quinn2.0

      I think she called Mo's husband a Philly bum ninja

    • NakeyaJ Valued Rose since 2011

      That was my issue. And then was promoting her sister sip and see. SO you are gonna invite IG to see your sisters baby? See no. It looks so thirsty

    • harley_quinn2.0

      I didn't know this maybe that woman's comments stemmed from this *Kanye shrug*

    • Letmecommentbeforeicant

      Aww. They basically gave him a whooping and was like "now give me a hug because it hurt us more than it hurt you." Forget their manager, it definately hurt him more. I would have walked clean off of the field after I found out...it's not like they're signing the checks anymore.

    • 1/8

      Team owners and managers are like slavetraders. The players are usually well paid, but they are treated like cattle; absolutely no regard for their feelings, families or health.

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      Basically Lil Mo posted a pic "Claiming" fans have been asking her where to send baby shower gifts for her 15th child. She said they weren't registered and yet they are accepting gift cards and PayPal. Fans got out of pocket and call her thirsty for asking people to send her money. Asking is the imperative word because she never asked but honestly what "celeb" does that??

    • AllmylifeIhadtofight

      I saw that one as well. They were still going in on the original post about the baby shower gifts.

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      well, who did Flores piss off. Because we all have an idea that this isn't the way trades are typically done, it's safe to say it was handled this way to get under Flores' skin. It worked.

      There is zero sensitivity for minorities. We are completely dehumanized and vilified by the majorities (YT's).

    • Queen of EVERYTHING

      True shit. My partner and I were just talking about that. He is Sri Lankan and I'm Black. I thought "our" struggle (the Black struggle) was the most notable (in my mind) until I started experiencing airport racism and being asked if we had "any bombs or explosive materials" during traffic stops. I really was awakened on a different level that there is truly a collective experience all minorities live through via the nonsensical, callous judgements of YT folks.
