Marcus Stroman appears to have no qualms about departing the New York Mets for the Chicago Cubs this offseason, as seen through a series of tweets he posted earlier this week.

On Twitter, Stroman chastised the organization for signing Eppler and expressed optimism that free agent Michael Conforto will play elsewhere rather than return to the Mets.

“Just look at who the Mets hired as their GM… that tells you enough. His lack of awareness in his previous position is being exposed to the public now. I’m beyond thankful I’m gone from that organization. God got me!,” he tweeted. However, the tweet was soon deleted.

According to reports, Stroman’s comments on Eppler could be in regard to the death of Tyler Skaggs, who died from an overdose in 2019, while Eppler was the general manager for the Los Angeles Angels.

Furthermore, Stroman also liked a tweet accusing the Mets of racism for pursuing the pitchers they were associated with, instead of him. Additionally, he liked another post that was described by a Mets beat reporter as an offensive term.

Prior to acquiring Max Scherzer, the Mets had been diverting their attention away from Stroman and into the free-agent market for starting pitchers, by considering signing Kevin Gausman and Jon Gray.

Stroman tweeted an appreciation note to the Mets organization and fans the day after joining the Cubs.

“HUGE THANK YOU to the @Mets and the city of New York for the last few years! Created some friendships that will last forever,” he tweeted.
