Marcus Stroman has always been outspoken, and a headline maker, no matter the situation. After NASCAR driver Kyle Larson used a racial slur in a virtual race, the New York Mets star took to Twitter to vent his anger at Larson.

Stroman has never been one to back down from any challenge. Stroman felt the apology meant nothing because Larson used the slur under the assumption that stream viewers were not able to hear what he was saying.

Tale of the Tape

Stroman has about three inches on Larson and is in by far better shape. For entertainment sake, who would not love to watch Stroman lay the smackdown on Larson. On the other hand, the Mets may not want to see their All-Star pitcher anywhere near the octagon. With Noah Syndergaard on the shelf, the Mets will need all the starters they can get.

A fight between the two seems highly unlikely. Then again, the Mets have a history of their players going on an doing things people never even imagine. Luckily we are all in quarantine for the distant future, so hopefully, all of this is just talk instead of reality.
