Sometimes being an elite sportsman sucks. And one of those times just happened for Mets player Wilmer fores. he’s been a Mets player all his professional life and suddenly fans were telling him he’d been traded. And he cried. Who can blame him, it came out of the blue, it was just a huge whammy and the whole basis of his life seemed as though it had been tipped on its head.
Fortunaetely the trade rumors were untrue, so Flores will keep playing for the Mets. But it’s a reminder that we should look past the glamor of the playing at the elite sports level to the harsh of how hard it is to keep your spot at that level. Keeping going Wilmer, you’ve got guts as well as the capacity to feel sad like all of us do.
