Mex embroiled in Phanatic Controversy

is this creature a racist?

A pleasant exchange of color men Gary Matthews and Keith Hernanadez during the first game of the Mets-Phillies double-header turned iinto an ugly disaster today. As Hernandez sat chatting in the Philadelphia broadcast booth, Philadelphia's mascot, the "Philly Phanatic," harrased the former Gold Glover, and at one point pouring popcorn over the head of the greatest first base man ever to play the game.

Viewers of MLBtv were further shocked to watch the Phanatic put Hernadez' head under his shirt. But the real controversy came when Hernandez called the Phanatic the "best," agreeing that all other mascots were second class "AAA" mascots.

Mr. Met was unavailable for comment. But he didn't look happy.

Confronted by Mr. Met's legion of fans, Hernandez later disputed these claims, calling them "ignorant." Stay tuned for further details...
