Mets Fire Hudgens, Release Valverde

by Ed Tsunoda on May 27, 2014

The Mets finally held someone accountable and fired hitting coach Dave Hudgens and released reliever Jose Valverde after yesterday’s 5-3 loss to the Pirates. Hudgens, took shots at the fans and the Mets TV booth on his way out:

“I really just think guys tried too hard at home,” Hudgens told MLB.com after his firing. “I think the fans are really tough on the guys at home. How can you boo Curtis Granderson? They have no idea how hard this guy works and how he goes about doing his business, doing his job. He gets off to a slow start and they’re booing him? Come on. It’s tougher at home to play than it is on the road, there’s no doubt about it.
