He was mostly good during his stint with the Mets, and while he appeared to go out on good terms, apparently that’s not the case.
Michael Baron, who has covered the Mets extensively for a few years now, tweeted about Stroman’s latest ventures on the social network.
“Marcus Stroman decided to take his business to Twitter, again. Everyone is entitled to his or her opinion of course, especially on this website I suppose. But its never a good idea to rip a boss in public, among other things which have transpired over the last few months here,” he said, while quoting someone who took two different screenshots of Stroman’s tweets directed to the Mets.

He was classy and composed in the first one, but the second one (which he sent, but allegedly deleted shortly after it was published), was a rant about the organization, new general manager Billy Eppler, and how he was “beyond thankful” he is gone from the organization.
Not A Good Look For The New Cubs Pitcher
As a reminder, Stroman signed with the Chicago Cubs before the lockout, on a three-year, $71 million deal after finishing the 2021 campaign with a really strong 3.02 ERA.
Regardless of what he thinks about Eppler or the Mets organization as a whole, it’s not a good look for Stroman to criticize them in public and doing so after he secured his payday with another team.
Fans have reacted to Stroman’s comments, mostly in a negative way.
Speaks volumes when Cohen is out there just throwing absurd money around to build a win now team and they didn't even make him an offer despite his good season. Guess the juice is just not worth the squeeze with this guy.

Since deleting the tweet, Stroman hasn’t referred to it in subsequent posts.
