Mets reporter: ‘Stop making a story out of Daniel Vogelbach’s weight’


Designated slugger and hitter Daniel Vogelbach has become a fan favorite among New York Mets loyalists since the Amazins acquired him from the Pittsburgh Pirates last month.

According to Rob Piersall of FanNation’s Inside the Mets, Vogelbach has reduced .341/.473/.568 since the trade and added two home runs and 10 RBIs. However, many fans and even some members of the media continue to focus on the fact that the 29-year-old is listed at 6 feet, 270 pounds, and is, as Mike Vaccaro of the New York Post put it, a ” big guy”. .”

Media personality Michelle Margaux, who covers the Mets for the club’s SNY television house, has heard enough of such takes.

“What I think we all need to do as members of the media and as baseball fans is stop making a story out of Daniel Vogelbach’s weight,” Margaux said when editing Thursday from the SNY “Geico SportsNite” program.

“I don’t think under any circumstances that there should be so much attention on a person in this way. We are lucky that he took the questions, articles and chatter lightly. But it’s time let it stop.

“Right now he’s playing at a higher level than expected. So why do we have to talk about it? He’s human. He’s a good baseball player. And he’s helping the Mets win.”
