Mets Fans Attack Reliever On Twitter: ‘Kill Yourself’

(WSCR) For 33-year-old Mets reliever Jon Rauch, his time in the Big Apple has been less-than-desirable.

In his first season in New York, Rauch has compiled a 3-6 record with a 4.88 ERA. His latest blunder took place Sunday when he gave up a walk-off home run to Russell Martin, as the Mets fell to the Yankees, 5-4.

Rauch’s miscue unleashed a flurry of harsh tweets from the Mets’ faithful, where some even encouraged him to kill himself.

Check out the tweets below.
