Wil Myers apologizes for complaining about Padres manager on Fortnite stream

Wil Myers

Wil Myers apologized on Monday after his complaints about his team’s manager inadvertently went public.

Myers was in the presence of second baseman Carlos Asuaje last week, who was live-streaming a game of Fortnite. Myers did not know that Asuaje was live-streaming when the veteran complained about San Diego Padres manager Andy Green putting the team through some elementary defensive drills.

Here’s how the exchange went, according to MLB.com’s AJ Cassavell:

“The Padres are doing cutoff and relays tomorrow at 3 o’clock — in September, dude,” Myers is heard saying.

He continued: “Oh my god. It’s so miserable, man. It’s insane. Andy could not be any worse than he is right now.”

“Dude,” Asuaje interjects, “I’m streaming this.”

According to Cassavell, the Padres, who have the worst record in the NL at 55-85, went through defensive drills before games on Thursday and Friday against the Colorado Rockies. Those are the kinds of drills teams usually do in spring training, but Green felt they were appropriate after the young team had made mistakes on those plays.

Myers, one of the few accomplished veterans on the team, met with Green on Monday to apologize, according to Cassavell. Myers took ownership of the situation. Green did not seem to take things personally, noting that everyone complains about their boss at some point.

Ultimately, nobody should be too concerned by this. Myers was obviously apologetic, and he certainly has a right to vent when he thinks he is in private.
