Mets Unveiling Tom Seaver Statue on Jackie Robinson Day Was Disrespectful

In the video above, Rob Parker explains to Chris Broussard why he's disappointed in the New York Mets for unveiling their Tom Seaver dedication statue on Jackie Robinson Day.

Rob Parker: "The Mets have always shot themselves in the foot. People have always said that this is why they're a second-rate organization because they just can't seem to get it right. I get the Tom Seaver, Tom Terrific. I grew up in Queens; I grew up a Mets fan. He was a great pitcher and a Hall of Fame pitcher. There's no doubt about him deserving a statue and the Mets having a day for him is probably long overdue but you cannot do it on Jackie Robinson Day. And I think it was disrespectful and short sighted."
