    This is big news in Northern Wisconsin today:

    A Mets player broke down crying on the field after he was mistakenly told he got traded in the middle of a game

    A bizarre scene unfolded during game against the Padres when Mets shortstop Wilmer Flores started crying while on the field after a premature report broke that he had been traded.

    The chaos began around the seventh inning when multiple reports broke stating that the Mets had agreed to a trade for Brewers All-Star center fielder Carlos Gomez.

    I think that his critics should give him a break.

    I'd cry too if I were told I was going to Wisconsin. Ha!

    (Well, you did pitch that one right in my wheelhouse...)

    Stressful time of year for some of these guys. Gomez ended up in Houston when it all sorted itself out. Houston is really going for it. It's quite a rapid turnaround for that team.

    And the Mets continue to display why they are the laughing stock of baseball.

    A very good baseball movie. Even Madonna, AND Rosie ODonnel couldn't ruin it.

    Irk.....I hate the word " traded"......it sounds like sports people are slaves, indentured servants at best.
