Jon Niese took a subtle shot on the Mets on his way out the door to Pittsburgh.
“I’m sure what I’ll appreciate more than anything is the way (the Pirates) play defense. I’m looking forward to that,” Niese told Pirates writers.
While Niese didn’t hide his displeasure when the defense let him down, the Mets actually had a better overall defense in 2015 than his new team did.
Pittsburgh led the NL with 122 errors while the Mets had the fifth-fewest miscues in the league with 88.
