Video of Fiery Bob Melvin

For those Mets fans concerned that Bob Melvin has no spunk, herewith is a pair of incidents showing that he can be quite stern and vehement in disagreements with umpire’s calls.


Joe Janish began MetsToday in 2005 to provide the unique perspective of a high-level player and coach -- he earned NCAA D-1 All-American honors as a catcher and coached several players who went on to play pro ball. As a result his posts often include mechanical evaluations, scout-like analysis, and opinions that go beyond the numbers.

    Why, he’s so perturbed, he might just take his hat off in a fit of displeasure!!! He’s got shoulders – and he’s NOT afraid to shrug them!!!!

    Oh God. I can’t wait.

    His body language screams “miffed”. I bet his players, to a man, felt that he had their backs.
