At first, Stroman praised former teammate Michael Conforto, calling him an “unbelievable human being,” adding that he believes the Mets should “pay that man what he deserves.”

“Just ran into my guy Conforto out here in AZ,” Stroman wrote on Twitter. “What an unbelievable human being who works/prepares to the highest degree. He automatically upgrades any team in all facets. Will rake all future and play great defense. Worth every penny. Pay that man what he deserves!”

A fan responded by saying she’s “still holding out hope” that Conforto returns to the Mets this year. Stroman had an interesting take in response.

“I’m hoping he’s well-paid elsewhere,” Stroman wrote.

He followed that up saying he’s “very very thankful to be out of there for several reasons.”

“God always got me. Beyond excited to perform for an incredible fanbase who appreciates their players! @Cubs,” Stroman wrote.

Stroman followed that up by ripping the new GM of the Mets.

“Just look at who the Mets hired as their GM…that tells you enough,” Stroman wrote. “His lack of awareness in his previous position is being exposed to the public now. I’m beyond thankful I’m gone from that organization. God got me!”
